Donate books this holiday season
This holiday season, Tiny Owl have partnered with the wonderful reading charity Doorstep Library to get more books into the hands of children who need them and promote reading for pleasure.
Buy a book from this page and we'll send it directly to Doorstep Library. You can donate as many books as you'd like.
Doorstep Library is a literacy charity that believes in the power of words to take children places, not just in their imagination, but in their lives. They want to see a world where all children can thrive in homes in which books are celebrated and a love of reading is embraced. With one in four 11 year olds leaving primary school unable to read or write properly, they recruit and train volunteers to go into some of the most disadvantaged areas in London to help introduce young children (aged 0-11 years) to the pleasure of reading. Other literacy charities get books into homes; Doorstep Library’s unique home-based service means they are there in person, finding the most appropriate books for every child they visit, and building a relationship with the whole family. Their projects not only improve literacy and confidence in children, but they increase family wellbeing and bonding through the joy of sharing stories. This kind of tailored support enables them to help prepare children for school and broaden their opportunities in life.
Here's Programme Manager Emily Oliver to tell you more:
