Over a decade of Doorstep Library!
We are proud to say that we have been fighting inequality in education since 2010, introducing the magic and benefits of reading to children in disadvantaged areas of London. In the last ten years, we have lent over 110,000 books, to over 1600 children and 670 families.
The pandemic has been hugely detrimental to children’s development, massively increasing inequality in educational attainment. To help bridge that gap we launched our #WhereDoWordsTakeYOU? campaign – asking people everywhere to think about the journeys that books and reading take them on.
Here we share quotes from some of our wonderful friends and supporters – we do hope these words inspire you to pick up and book and go on your own journeys.
