Join the Pub Prize Team at the UCL Publishers’ Prize Book Drive in collaboration with CILIP and Youth Libraries Group. As this year also marks the centenary for the Department of Information Studies and the theme for the anthology is libraries, we believe this is a really worthwhile way to give back to the very libraries that many of us benefit from. Students and UCL staff are encouraged to donate new, lightly used and unwrapped children’s and young adult books.
The Book Drive will run from the 27th January to the 5th February, culminating in an informal ‘Tea for Books’ event where participants will receive tea or coffee in exchange for their donations! In order to reduce waste we are asking people to bring their reusable cups if possible. Books can be dropped off at the donation bin located at the DIS Postgraduate Common Room, Foster Court, Room G20.
Help us to celebrate libraries and to inspire the next generation of readers!
Details of the event can be found on our social media.
