Booked Up was launched in 2007, inspired by the Bookstart and Booktime programmes, which give free book packs to babies and reception-aged children respectively. During the first four years of the programme, Booked Up has given a free book to over 2.5 million children in England.
Booked Up is generously supported by children’s book publishers and funded by the Department for Education (DfE).

The programme is run by Booktrust, an independent charity dedicated to encouraging people of all ages and cultures to engage with books. Visit  the Booktrust website to find out more.
Booked Up’s goal is to encourage reading for pleasure and independent choice. Year 7 students choose their free book from a list of specially selected titles.

Once again, the Librarians registered TRS and organized the selection and ordering of the books. We hope the Year 7s enjoy their selection. If you like the look of any of the Booked Up books, copies of all the titles are held in the Discovery Library for borrowing.
