Outcomers Celebrates World Book Day with Free Books for Primary Schools

Outcomers is celebrating World Book Day on March 3rd, 2022 by extending an offer of a free set of six LGBT+ inclusive books to primary schools in Louth and Meath. The books are designed for primary school aged children, with a selection of fairy tales to choose from along with one book to explain what it means to be LGBT+.

World Book day is an annual event to promote the enjoyment of books and reading to children and young people. The set of books Outcomers provides ensures that children and young people also have the opportunity to enjoy seeing themselves and their families in the stories that they explore. If you would like to request a set of books for your primary school, please contact [email protected] or contact Outcomers on 042 9324816. Outcomers would like to extend their thanks to LMETB for funding this initiative.
