Keep our stories alive
The African Book Trust has a simple mission: To give South African books to South African libraries. We're building a collection of essential reading to make available to every school and library in the country.
Your support goes directly to buying books and delivering them to where they're needed most.
For our friends in the United States, we have a special page that lets you make tax-deductible donations.
Our stories are who we are
Our stories define who we are as South Africans, remind us of where we've been, and inspire us about where we want to go.
That's why we want to make South African books as widely available as possible, in libraries where they can be shared, preserved and celebrated.
We need your help
Tell us which books you love. Help us choose books to give to every library in South Africa.
If you can, donate to the Trust to help us buy books and deliver them to libraries where other people can love them as much as you do.
