The Great Book Exchange
Here's a great "big society" idea we like. On 4th January 2, the Early Learning Centre launched The Great Book Exchange, designed to revamp young children’s reading material and get books that they have outgrown to children who really need them.
Just when many families cannot justifyably spend another penny post Christmas, the ELC has launched a novel service to keep children and books circulating, and exposing new authors and illustrators to their readership.
Many families in the
In return parents will be able buy new books for their children with a 50% discount voucher so their children will be able to benefit as much from The Great Book Exchange as the local children’s causes that will receive the donated books.
Four easy steps to the Great Book Exchange
1. Go to a participating ELC or Mothercare with an ELC shop-in-shop.
2. Bring in up to ten of your children’s old books.
3. Receive a 50% discount voucher to spend on books in store.
4. Go home happy with the knowledge that your old books are going to children who need them.
