Street Reads is an Edinburgh project giving away donated books to homeless readers. We believe that a book can be a place of escape and solace in a hard world and that a gift of reading connects us all.
We manage a weekly book cart at a local venue which feeds homeless people and we’re helping install a mini-library in a hostel for the homeless in Edinburgh’s Old Town. We also supply Shakti Women’s Aid with a wide range of children’s books. Edinburgh Settlement Projects has been absolutely crucial in enabling us to carry out this work and we are grateful to them for their continued support.
