ENTHUSIASTIC VOLUNTEERS

©

Book Banks © is a reading initiative run by StEPs (St Albans Educational Partnership for Schools) in partnership with local food banks. Volunteers create a quiet, inviting space in the main food bank area and can read stories to children (mostly under 5's, but older children in the school holidays are also welcomed) using story sacks and exciting, engaging resources. Children are able to pick a book from our huge bank of second hand and donated books which they can take home with them. These books are given freely and they can return them the next week or just take a new one, although we encourage them to bring them back and share the story with us.
