How Speaking Volumes works

Speaking Volumes is a scheme operated by an endowed trust called The Christian Book Promotion Trust. 


We offer grant funding for placements of books and DVDs on the Christian faith to anywhere they can be borrowed and enjoyed. Using a panel of experts we select the most appropriate books for each library setting. 


Simply select your books and DVDs for your chosen library and apply for up to £1,000 per library.  We'll let you know our decision after our next meeting and discuss the best way to make your purchase.
