Donate a book!

We want good quality books, used books in good condition, or new books.

  • Primarily current academic books in English and Arabic.
  • Books in the refugees' own languages, but also in French, German and Spanish.
  • Books in the Nordic languages are not needed.

We also believe that fiction in the same languages is desirable.

Children's books

Children's books and picture books are also needed, and they may well be in Norwegian.

Hand the books in by the 26th November

Regardless of language and genre, we want as many good books as possible! Deadline for dropping off books is Thursday 26th November.
