The Letterbox Club  is a scheme aiming to improve the educational outlook for looked after children aged 7-11 by providing them with a parcel of books and activities once every month for six months.

Find Your Talent and Children Leeds have provided funding for Leeds Libraries to work with children in care through the Letterbox scheme and, so far, more than 100 children have  benefitted from this opportunity.

Leeds is trialling an innovative new approach to the scheme that encourages looked after children and carers to develop links with libraries by collecting the book parcels from their local library.

The eye catching red parcels have been bursting at the seams this summer thanks to a donation of free books from the Bookaboo initiative. Titles in the bonus bundle include childrens classics Cat In The Hat and Paddington Bear.
