Books make things better – books bring joy and provide comfort during difficult times – and reading has the power to change lives. At Children’s Books Ireland, we champion every child’s right to experience the joy of reading, regardless of their circumstances. But right now, there are many children across Ireland who don’t have access to books at home and many schools with empty bookshelves.
This year, together with our partners, we have donated over 16,000 books to children in direct provision centres, schools, hospitals and homeless services across Ireland. By working to ensure that every child has a chance to develop a love of reading, we can improve the lives of children and young people all over the island of Ireland – and you can help us.
In 2021, we want to get even more books into the hands of even more children. Donate €12 today to #GiftABook to a child who needs it and help us bring the joy of reading into more young lives.
