BORD Gáis Energy Book Club wants to share the love of books and reading with Donegal by making a donation of a library worth €1,500 to a nominated group in the county.
Nominations for the Donate a Library initiative will close on Friday, August 9. Bord Gáis Energy is reminding individuals and organisations from Donegal to submit their entries for a local charity, community, voluntary or non-profit group to receive the library before the deadline.
Since its launch in April, the initiative has received an overwhelming response with over 100 nominations citing escapism, education, literacy support for young people, company for elderly people, strengthening the community and many other reasons to support their pitch for why a library would be a valuable resource for their group.
Emma Walsh, Books and Reading Sponsorship Programme Manager said, “The response to this new programme has been incredibly positive and we’re delighted with the amount of nominations we have received so far which has really surpassed our expectations.
“Some counties have been very active in nominating local groups and we hope the last few weeks will see more nominations coming in for great causes.
“There is still time for charities and voluntary groups in Donegal, to submit their entries before the first nomination round ends on August 9.”
Bord Gáis Energy Book Club will donate a library worth €1,500 to organisations within the community and voluntary sector, every four months on an ongoing basis. Those wishing to nominate an organisation can do so at www.bordgaisenergybookclub.ie.
