Calder Valley Books for Change
We need our primary school libraries to stock a diverse range of fiction and non-fiction; picture books and chapter books that include diverse characters of colour, ability, strong female protaganists and boys that are not afraid to be different. We know that our school libraries need much more of a range of books, so are asking for donations so that we can buy and donate diverse books to every Primary school located along the Calder Valley, from Rastrick to Walsden.
We want to make sure our children know the history of struggle, resistance and hard-fought rights. We want to empower every child to know that they can make a difference. We know that the starting point for this is through reading.
We believe in the power of our children: change can happen.
Check our Facebook page @caldervalleybooksforchange and on instagram @caldervalleybooksforchange for book lists, fund-raising events, and which schools we have donated to (when we reach that phase). If you want to get involved in some other way, please make contact through firstname.lastname@example.org

About the fundraiser
Calder Valley Books for Change seeks to raise £6000 to buy sets of books for each of the 60 primary schools across the Calder Valley. The books will be diverse and inclusive: some will be inspiring stories, others will have characters not often represented in children’s books.
