Give a Book is a UK registered charity. We facilitate the gift of books to selected charities and other organisations, such as schools and prisons.

The charity was set up in 2011 in memory of writer and playwright Simon Gray, who loved to read and to share his reading.

We provide books to projects, charities and organisations that can get books to where they are needed most. We are dedicated to promoting reading for pleasure and giving books where they make a real difference.


Our Partners

In September 2017, Prison Reading Groups (PRG) became part of Give a Book. We work with PRG to supply books for Reading Groups and Family Days in over 30 UK prisons.

We are grateful to Daunt Books for their partnership and support over the years.
