A Book For Every Child

Please help us make sure that every child has a book to call their own.

London Public Library's A Book for Every Child ensures that 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. Details:

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 online.
  • Donate new books year round at any library location.
  • Purchase books at participating booksellers who offer a 20% discount during our annual initiative. Find the list on our A Book For Every Child Page.
