Give upto ₦1,000 for any book

To take a book away, we require beneficiaries to contribute a distribution fee of ₦500 per book for basic categories or ₦1,000 per book for tertiary and reference categories to help with the overhead costs of our Distribution Centres (warehousing, staff, etc). The fee is not a purchase price as the books are not for sale and are worth much more. We do not provide books to be sold or to book sellers.

Send Photos and Reports

We require beneficiaries to open a free Books2Africa Account online or in person 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, and every book labelled with a yellow impact sticker to be sent to the donor of the book.

Types of Books We Donate

You can request a donation of books across our 22 categories for all ages and subjects, from nursery school to university level. Our books are a mixture of new and used conditions, published mainly in English, with a special French Collection category for books published in French. All our books are thoroughly checked to meet quality standards before they are shipped to Nigeria.
