A Book for Every Child

A Book for Every Child

London Public Library's A Book for Every Child© is a year-round project established in 1992 with an annual initiative during November and December. Books are distributed to children who otherwise would not own a book through 40 area agencies serving families and children. London Public Library's A Book For Every Child© promotes awareness of the importance of books in a child's life, supports family literacy and has a direct and lasting impact on children in our community.

You can:

  • Give financial donations year round. These donations enable Library staff to purchase new books for babies, toddlers, beginning readers, school-aged children and teens on your behalf.
  • Donate new books year round.
  • Purchase books at participating booksellers who offer a 20% discount during our annual initiative (a list of participating booksellers will be available in November of each year).
  • Consider giving donations as gifts on behalf of someone special. For example, your child's teacher, birthday presents, or memorial donations. Gift cards are available upon request.

For more information call 519-661-5100 ext 5460.
