Library cautions to be on guard for fraudulent door-to-door canvassers
London Community News
London Public Library staff is advising the public that individuals may be fraudulently canvassing door-to-door in London collecting donations for the A Book for Every Child Campaign. The public should be aware that the A Book for Every Child campaign does not involve canvassing door-to-door.
If someone comes to your door seeking donations for A Book for Every Child, please be aware that these individuals are not acting on behalf of this campaign and you should notify the police.
Donations for A Book for Every Child are accepted in person at participating booksellers, in person at any library location or by mail.
A Book for Every Child is a year-round project established in 1992, with an annual campaign during November and December organized by library staff and the Friends of the London Public Library. The goal is to give books to children who otherwise would not own a book.
A Book for Every Child promotes awareness of the importance of books in a child’s life, supports family literacy and has a direct and lasting impact on children in our community. The books are distributed to children who otherwise would not own a book, through more than 50 area agencies serving families and children.
