I share books


The second edition of the 'I share books' Social Action is organized in 2012 by the 'Child and Culture' Foundation (last year by Qlturka.pl) in cooperation with Silesia Expo (organizer of the Book Fair in Katowice) and the 'Miasto Słów' Foundation.

The sponsors of the Action are DPD Polska and Firma Księgarska Olesiejuk.

From September 7-9, throughout the duration of the Book Fair in Katowice, the organizers of the campaign will be waiting for all willing children (and adults too) who want to bring a book selected from their collections and give it to children who have no contact with literature in children's homes , hospitals, hospices, and also in the care of community day rooms. Some books will also be donated to small rural libraries and to the emerging Polish community libraries, including in Denmark and Ukraine.

At the stand of the Qlturka.pl/Fundacji portal "Child and Culture" you will not only be able to leave the book you have brought, but also take part in creative activities. We strongly encourage parents, teachers and educators to pass on information about the Action, to print a poster, as well as to personally participate in the collection with children.

The first edition of the social action "I share books", carried out by Qlturka.pl in cooperation with the "Miasto Słów" Foundation in 2011 during the Children's Book Fair in Krakow (June 2-5) met with great interest. We managed to collect over a thousand books, which thanks to DPD Polska, the Action sponsor, were delivered to 50 institutions (orphanages, hospices, hospitals and community clubs) throughout the country. The main donors were children who brought books of their choicewanting to give them to those in need. The campaign was also supported by publishing houses, providing copies; many books were also donated by the organizer of the "Comma and Dot" competition for the best children's book. The action met with great media interest - Radio Kraków, "Dziennik Polski", Biblionetka.pl, etc.

During the first edition of this year, organized during the Warsaw Book Fair (May 9-13), 2,000 were collected. books that went to 50 centers around the country.

Sosrodzice.pl took patronage over the action! We encourage you to take part in this event!
