Help Us Build A Library. Donate Books
Give the gift of a smile on a little one’s face when you donate your child’s used books to charity. We all have so many of our children’s books at home piling up in corners, overflowing from our bookshelves, collecting dust and we do not know what to do with them. Help get your child’s used books or some new ones in the hands of young children who need them. Your book donations can help a young child to love reading and learning.

Where will your used book donations go?
To discover the true potential of the young minds we saw knowing the language of the globe was a big help. To realize this dream we at Indus Net Foundation started a program named Read <to> Learn in collaboration with Krishworks, an IIM Calcutta incubated EdTech. The focus is not only on the children but also on teachers who are provided training on soft skills, the curriculum, and training to help them cater to every type of student that is present in the digital classroom.
To take this initiative one step further, we are building a library for these little laureates at the Karimpur Girls High School, Nadia, West Bengal and we seek your help, support, and contribution. Your books will hold a very proud place at this library and give the needy children access to a larger world through the wonders of reading.
Are you up for it? So, How do you donate the books?
Simply pack the books in a box, include your name, email and phone no. so that we can thank you personally and drop them at our office. Alternatively, we can pick up the books from your office or home, just send us the request! We will call you and schedule a convenient pick up time. Share the pleasure of reading with the less fortunate by donating your used books to the new library of Karimpur Girls High School.
