Donating books to help children

Ystruth Primary School

Ystruth Primary School

A very lovely lady called Rachel has recently contacted me.  She is a mum and volunteer librarian at Ystruth Primary School in Blaina, South Wales. The school is located in a deprived area where many children have never had the experience of visiting a library.  The school have started a project to set up a library to encourage their pupils to read and enjoy books, but have very few resources to do so.

They would be hugely grateful if any authors could donate a copy of their book/books.  The children are aged between 4-11 years, so any books that cover this age range would be fantastic!  They can be fiction or non-fiction.  If they could be signed by the author that would be even better, and, from my own school visits, seeing children’s reactions to a ‘real’ author, I am sure this would help encourage and inspire the children at this school.

I shall be donating and dedicating a copy of each of my books to the school.  If anyone else would like to donate a book, please contact me via the comments section below, or email me at my hotmail address if you have it, or via the ‘Contact Me’ tab on my website, leaving your email address.  I can then pass your details on to Rachel and she will contact you.

My memories of early library visits ignited a love of books and reading that will never fade.  Please donate.  These little things make such a huge difference to children.

Thank you!
