free books - free minds


Our first ever project was Borderline Books which began in The Netherlands in 2001. We moved to the UK in 2006 where it has flourished. We collect books no longer needed by publishers, libraries, authors, agents and others and redistribute them free of charge to those without books via foodbanks, schools, prisons, women’s refuges, refugee organisations and community groups. Our work with prisons is now a major part of our work and will be expanded over the next months and years.


Peggy Seeger and Prof Michael Rosen are patrons of Borderline Books.
