Books Council of Wales
The Books Council of Wales is a national charity which supports and develops the publishing industry in Wales. We promote literacy and reading for pleasure through a range of public campaigns, activities and events across Wales, often working in partnership with schools, libraries and other literary organisations. Established in Aberystwyth in 1961, we work with publishers to nurture new talent and content in Welsh and English as well as offering specialist editing, design, marketing and distribution services. We also administer grants to publishers and independent booksellers. Our funding comes partly from Welsh Government through Creative Wales and partly from the commercial operations of our wholesale book Ddistribution Ccentre.
The Books Council offers much more than a recommended books list, they offer school visits, advice, resources and ideas for book events and much more. See the resource links below for information.
There are 3 Sales and Information Officers throughout Wales.
