Lord Mayor's Big Read: Christmas Book Gifting

This Christmas, the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Councillor Sioned-Mair Richards, is inviting you to share the joy of reading with children from families that are struggling financially across the city.

Simply purchase a book by 12 December from our online shopfront, hosted by our bookselling partner La Biblioteka. You can choose from board books for babies, picture books, middle-grade (junior school) books, and young adult novels - our curated selection has something for every child!

Your book will be gifted to a family in need via our distribution partners S6 Foodbank, part of the Trussell Trust. S6 Foodbank run a network of foodbanks across the city, from Parson Cross to Woodhouse, and provided 28,258 food bank parcels to people in crisis over the last six months.

We will match your book to a child or young person on your behalf.

How it works

  • Visit our online shopfront and select your book(s)
  • Check that the 'BIG READ CAMPAIGN FREE FOODBANK DELIVERY' option is selected - you will not be charged for delivery!
  • On the payment page, untick the 'Deliver to different address' option. You do not need to put in an address for the library or the foodbank - our lovely booksellers will recognise it as a Big Read book gifting order and will do everything necessary.
  • That's it!

Thank you and a very merry Christmas, from Sheffield Libraries, the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, S6 Foodbank and La Biblioteka.
