We're nearly at the end of November! Christmas and Hannukah are rapidly approaching, and if you're struggling to find the perfect present for someone, why not sponsor a book in their name? We have three donations levels (board book £19, picture book £29 and short chapter book £45), and you can request different topics and any special wording you'd like on the sponsorship sticker inside the book. We can either send you a simple certificate, or a photo of the book with the person's name inside. Above all, your giftee will know that their sponsored book will help children across the country learn to read, progress in education and enjoy sharing stories with their family for years to come! You can complete the sponsorship form on the 'Support Us' page of our website if you'd like to send us a cheque, or phone/email us for our bank details so you can make a BACS payment (sorry, we can't currently take card payments over the phone): 0208 789 9575.
Another way to support the library's work is to make a one-off or regular donation or buy some of our Christmas cards. They're £3 (plus p&p) for a packet of 10, and feature a beautiful design of a Barn Owl sat in a snow-covered holly tree. Inside the print reads "Season's Greetings". Please email or call us to place your order.
Thank you to everyone who supports our work; the difference it makes to the families who borrow our books is huge.
