Did you know that how well you read has a direct bearing on how well you do in life? This means that children from areas with less access to books are left at a serious disadvantage. Doorstep Library are working to help as many of these vulnerable families as they can.
Doorstep Library recruit and train volunteers to go into the homes of families living in London and introduce their children, from ages 0-11 to the pleasure of reading and inspire them with it. Not only do they read stories with the children, they also lend them books to exchange when they return the following week.
Doorstep Library believe in the power of words to take children places, not just in their imagination, but in their lives.
