Choose Usborne for your School - Reason #5 Community Book Pledge

26th July 2018

We have thousands of Usborne Organisers across the UK and Europe working with schools to inspire a lifelong love of reading in their pupils, and to help teachers and parents to find the very best books for their children.

Every month we explore a different reason why creating a partnership with an Usborne Organiser can hugely benefit you and your school. From free and discounted books for your school, to planning personalised reading events to suit you, to recommending the best books for each age range, an Usborne Organiser can be an invaluable support to you and your school.

This month we're looking at Usborne's Community Book Pledge - a brilliant way for you to fill your school library, or refresh your class reads for free.

What is the Usborne Community Book Pledge?

Usborne's Community Book Pledge is a simple, easy way for you to increase vital reading resources in your school. It aims to connect schools with their local community, to help them to work together to enhance the learning resources of all pupils.

How does a Book Pledge work?

With your written permission, an Usborne Organiser will contact local businesses and organisations on your behalf, asking them to make a small donation to buy Usborne books for your school.

Your Organiser will take care of everything, from pledge letters and posters to collecting donations and delivering books - all you have to do is confirm that your school is happy to be the beneficiary. 

In addition to any donations made, Usborne will increase the value of the donations by up to 60%, leaving you free to choose the books that you would love for your school from our range of over 2500 titles.
