School libraries are a hugely important part of our education system, not only impacting reading and writing proficiency, but also wider learning skills in the curriculum as a whole.
The library should be the beating heart of every school - it promotes and supports leisure time and reading, contributes towards social development, and more importantly acts as a learning resource that is invaluable to our children's growth.
Recent research has shown that fewer than half of children and young people read outside their class, and standards of literacy in England are behind many other countries. Recent budget cuts are even threatening to worsen the plight of our school libraries - Now is the time for change.
This is why we have started the #books4schools campaign on social media, in order to work towards providing every child with the opportunity to read in a safe and intellectually nourishing environment. It is our mission to fill as many of our libraries as possible with quality books from a diverse range of authors.
We have recently donated over £1000 worth of books to a number of primary schools in the Lancashire area, and intend to continue fundraising to reach out to other schools that may need our support.
If you would like to support our campaign, please consider donating below or buying a specific book for a school. If you work in a primary school, or you know of a local school that may need our help, please do get in touch with us.
"Over the past couple of years, we have been awaiting the completion of building work to bring our children on to one site, and we are now in a position to rebuild our library/reading areas. It can be difficult to provide the range and variety of books our pupils deserve, and help with stocking our library from The Untidy Bookshelf will go a long way towards improving our resources and the reading experiences the children are offered."
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and ensure all school children have access to a wide variety of quality books.
Thank you for your generous support.
