Do you remember a character from a childhood book as fondly as an old friend?
If you do, you’ll know the magic of being able to slip into another world as and when you need to, or how books can make your world a bigger, brighter place.
For bookworms especially, it’s hard to believe that anyone could see reading as anything other than empowering, or even just a pleasure. For the third of children from disadvantaged areas who leave primary school without being able to read well, often it’s nothing but a chore.
That’s why we like to turn up on the doorstep, with a backpack of books, two little stools, and a pair of volunteers who know that words take you places
Our volunteers bring the magic of reading directly into families’ homes every week. Doorstep Library doesn’t just read stories; they do the silly voices, hand pick the books, and give special recommendations. By making it fun first, we get to watch children transform into budding readers.
In fact, our volunteers often tell us that coming to Doorstep Library is the best part of their week. Not only can they share their joy of reading, but can also be part of a book loving team.
