The driving force behind this initiative is Library4all, an NGO committed to lifelong learning and making education accessible to all.

What kind of books can you offer?

You can either offer books of your own which are in good condition or purchase new ones.  These may be Greek or foreign language books, as well as books in Braille. They should be suitable for children in kindergarten or at primary school level.  We do not accept encyclopedias, books with hand-written notes in them, school books and books featuring cartoon heroes.

Why do you organize the bookwave?

To foster the love of reading in children, to help them acquire reading habits and become better readers.  Our desire is for children to have optimal access to books by enriching the libraries of schools and other institutions. Books will come to life in the hands of children who will discover them over and over again in their natural surroundings.
