Donate Books!

You give the joy of reading to someone when you donate your used books to us. Katha, along with its partners, has numerous book collection centres where you can donate the books that might just be piling up in corners, desks, cupboards and gathering dust.

Katha will help your old or gently used books to reach in the hands of people who need them by donating your used books to COOL! (Community Owned and Operated Libraries) in Delhi and beyond. Your used-book donations can help a young child learn to love to read.

Where do the books go?

We run more than 60 libraries, either as a COOL! (Community owned and operated library) or as a 300m Library under partnerships with 300m Challenge Alliance organisations!
