OWN BOOKS is an innovative book recycling project to help children have their own books at home. The project is child-centred aiming to give away many free books to children of all backgrounds and ages, without any discrimination. It aims to:

  1. Encourage young children to develop an early love of books and reading through choosing and keeping their own books at home
  2. Encourage children to select books to take home when it suits them 
  3. Avoid the need to buy or obligation to return the books
  4. Remove any stress and financial constraints on parents over acquisition of books 
  5. Encourage parents to read with their children at home. Own Books believe passionately in children having books at home, sharing and enjoying them with their siblings and families.

Year 6 pupils helped to label and organise the books so that they could be delivered to the appropriate age groups.

We would like to thank Own Books for the delivery which has already made so many children smile.
