Doorstep Library at Hammersmith Community Gardens

Doorstep Library hosted a wonderful Easter event with Hammersmith Community Gardens on 5th April, inviting families for storytelling and play activities. We were very happy to be part of this, supplying books to hand out to children and families who came on the day.

We heard some lovely stories about children enjoying the day, and choosing their books to take home: “These are two girls we currently read with on two of our projects. They’re best friends who no longer live near each other but picked the same book so they could read it together and compare notes. They race through pages, so we’re really glad they have Give a Book bookmarks!”

Doorstep Library volunteers go into some of the most disadvantaged areas in London to help to introduce children aged 1- 11 to the pleasure of reading. Give a Book has worked with them since 2014. Find out more about our work together here.
