Our Terms of Service

Read books at our Distribution Centre free of charge or contribute a flat distribution fee per book to acquire any book in stock.

We only provide books for personal use, not for sale

Books2Africa Disttribution Centres do not provide books to be sold or to book sellers/middle men. We are a charity and our aim is to provide books directly to end-users or to approved institutions, organisations, projects or partners that make the books available directly to end users - students, teachers or readers within their communities.

Read for free or give less than £1 to take any book home

Register on arrival to read for free. To take books away, we require beneficiaries to contribute a distribution fee of ₦200 per book (basic categories) or ₦500 per book (tertiary categories) to help with the overhead costs of our Distribution Centre (warehousing, staff, etc). The fee is not a purchase price as the books are not for sale and are worth much more.

Register for a free Books2Africa account

We require beneficiaries to open a free Books2Africa Account on site using their email address before they are eligible to read or take books away from our distribution centres. We also require you to take an Impact Photo holding one of the books you receive, which is sent to the donor of the book for impact monitoring and reporting!
