Book Wish Lists for Schools

Book wish lists are a quick and easy way to get books for a school courtesy of the school community.

Schools: About Us

A Wish List for Every School

Wish Lists are viewable under the ‘School Wish Lists’ filter of our store. We organise everything for each school within there. Each school can host up to 30 books (can be increased if uptake is high) and specify the quantity of each book they wish to receive. As soon as a donation is taken it is posted directly to school so they can enjoy the books immediately. We also provide the school with the name of the donor (unless they wish to remain anonymous) so that they can be thanked and, if the school wishes, have their name put in the book.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Why get a Wish List?

  • Costs the school no money

  • Very easy to send from schools to parents - they just need directing to the store or you can send them the link in a direct email

  • Very little work from school’s end - you can specify the books you want or A New Chapter can set you up a book list that should suit your needs

You do not have to use books from the site - if a book is in print it can go on your wish list.

Which books can I have?

  • Any book in stock, here are some of the ways that schools have used it so far:

    • To diversify their offering in the library

    • To get class sets for teachers to use

    • To expand the amount of non-fiction available to children

    • To get specific books such as Barrington Stoke/No Outsiders


The best thing you can do is ask any questions so we can work together and make everything perfect for your school.
