As book lovers, we know the struggle of parting with your books after a long time. We hold
on to books for various reasons. For example, it could be a book changed your emotional or
mental intelligence completely or it was gifted to you by a friend. There is also the obsession of
collecting either first or second editions to create a magnificent shelf of books after every read.
However, do you know donating books is not only helpful to others but also to you? Let us
discuss a few reasons why you need to donate some books:
Africa. In most cases when you give out a used book to a local organization supporting
the welfare of developing countries, they are sold at a lower price or given for free. Most
children in Africa especially in remote areas lack reading materials. They miss out the
opportunity of enhancing their knowledge and skills. Donating books to Africa directly or
indirectly is a good course towards promoting equal education opportunities and
readers. It does not only create space but also gives you room to get and accommodate
your new reads. De-cluttering your space promote proper organization which is effective
organization that donates books to Africa when giving out your books. The continent has
been ranked among high risk illiteracy areas among the globe. Nurturing the reading
spirit can start from an individual level through donation. You get a chance to impact the
life of child who does not have access to materials and funds to acquire knowledge and
who encourage you to sell books to them often donate the sales proceed to support
helpful courses. For example, building a library, providing them with clothes and food.
It will not often be easy to let go of some of your books. However, donating your books
will be part of the education liberation revolution across the globe. It might seem like quite a
small effort but collectively, it has a significant impact in promoting literacy and the reading
culture across the world.
