Publisher offers 1,000 free books for poor schools

A major publisher of illustrated classics has offered to boost the libraries of poorer schools in London with a remarkably generous offer of 1,000 free books worth £30,000.

Inspired by the Standard’s Get London Reading campaign, and our report yesterday of how St Marylebone School in Westminster transformed their run-down library into the “coolest room in the school”, the Folio Society has pledged to help another 20 high schools kick-start their own libraries.

The first 20 eligible schools to apply will each get 50 superbly illustrated hardback classics delivered to their door free of charge. The selection will include Moby Dick, Tom Sawyer, Robin Hood, The Canterbury Tales, Wuthering Heights, Pride and Prejudice, the Complete Works of Shakespeare, A Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World, and dozens more.
