After hearing about teachers and librarians funding their libraries with their own money, Caroline and Faye decided that we wanted to do something to help; making sure that every child has access to books. Inspired by the upcoming festive season and the many bookish Secret Santa’s going on which demonstrates the generosity of the book community, they have created a platform to connect libraries with potential Santas.
Every library which signs up for the scheme will get an individual dedicated page which will list their wishlists. The Santas can then browse libraries by geographic location or specific titles by author. Once a Santa has selected a library, they can comment on the post with which book they would like to provide. #SchoolLibrarySanta will then contact the Santa and provide them with the library’s mailing address. Once a book has been pledged to the library, it will be removed from their wishlist to avoid duplicate copies being sent unnecessarily.
Books do not need to be new copies. Good quality second hand books from smoke free environments are also welcomed . Please no proof copies.
Visit School Library Santa for more information, to sign up a library or to gift a book or two.
