deCoubertin Books donate to Liverpool Libraries

Posted by

deCoubertin Books are proud to announce the donation of 80 Liverpool and Everton-related tomes to the libraries of Liverpool City Council.

These include Everton: The Complete Record (2nd Edition); Liverpool: The Complete Record (2nd Edition); 61 Minutes in Munich by Howard Gayle and The Cannonball Kid by Dave Hickson.

With council budgets being slashed nationwide, libraries across the country are continually being forced to close their doors. Yet they remain essential to communities everywhere, their purpose wide-reaching. Libraries provide a space where children can learn to read, adults can congregate with friends and, most importantly, they allow everyone to share the simple human right of access to free books.

Megan Pollard, Assistant Publisher for deCoubertin Books, said; ‘We are delighted to be donating these books to the Liverpool Libraries. Libraries are vital to our communities, not just for books and resources but for expert professional advice and support and as a hub for our local areas.’
