How books change lives
It costs just £2 to send a book to children around the world who otherwise would have little or no access to books. The funds you raise this World Book Day will help us send brand new books to thousands of public and community libraries, prisons, refugee camps, hospitals, schools and universities. The books we provide reach millions of people each year, giving them the opportunity to improve their lives and shape their futures.
