Get your visitors reading! Register your premises for Books2Africa’s Book Swap to encourage and promote a culture of reading here in the UK. We’ll donate and ship up to 50 books from categories of your choice to be displayed within your premises – on a shelf or table you have – together with our Book Swap A4 poster to be framed and displayed next to the books. Now your visitors have a selection of books to read or swap with another. We’ll also add you to our Book Swap Map below so more readers can find you. 

Yes, its absolutely free to register and you receive your parcel of books and the Book Swap poster within 3-5 working days.

No, because we want you to be able to choose a shelf, table or frame that matches the theme, style or décor of your premises. You can use any type of shelf (standing or floating, wooden or metal etc) or table (round, square, etc).

We can donate a maximum of 50 books to get you started. You can request less than this if you prefer.

If your shelf or table starts to overflow, package your excess books into a box and contact us to arrange a free collection from your premises.

After you display your books and Book Swap poster, send us a photo to add your location to the map.
