Book Donation to ‘Better World Books’
Since 2014, Withington’s Librarian has organised book collections for ‘Better World Books’, an organisation which donates a portion of its profits to literacy programmes around the world.
The School Librarian, coordinated the collection of books. The majority of donations came from Withington’s own library.
Departmental Staff also donated fiction and non-fiction books to the collection.
Withington collected 15 boxes of books for Better World Books in 2017. The funds raised through the resale of these books helps to support literacy programmes and charities, including ‘Room to Read’, ‘Books for Africa’ and ‘Feed the Children’.
