The book drive is a method whereby children book collection is built or added to the stock of library. We seek volunteers globally to collect used or new books from schools, public places or homes for the use of less privileged children and displaced children.
Book Gifts and donations:
Gifts and donation are valuable source of enriching the libraries book collection. Global Funding Network in conjunction with the parent organization and support from donor organization enriches the schools, library and remote settlements, thereby promoting reading culture among children, especially less privileged children.
We believe that no library can afford to purchase all reading materials, which are needed by the users. So the library relies to some extend on acquiring publication through the methods of gifts and donations. Also:
- Gift should be examined in relation to the purpose and programe of the library on a long range basis.
- All gifts materials must be properly organised like purchase materials.
- Gift indicating ‘received on donation’ should be acknowledge thanking a donner.
