We would like to thank the DCMS (Department for Culture, Media and Sport) very warmly for their interest in the Home Library from the outset and for their financial support and sound advice throughout. Also, a very special thank you to the following:

Terry Pratchett, Philip Pullman, J K Rowling and Jacqueline Wilson for generous donations to the brailled books project.

St James's Place Foundation for their generous donation to the brailled books project.

Oxfam for creating their own Home Library poster and bookplate and for running author events at Oxfam bookshops up and down the country.

HarperCollins, Hodder Headline, Macmillan, Random House Children's Books, Puffin and Walker Books for giving up to 50% discount on the books for the brailled books project.

Marion Ripley at ClearVision, our partner, for co-ordinating the brailled books and feelie bookmarks projects.

The hundreds of illustrators who so generously donated original bookplate designs for this site.

Special thanks, too, to Quentin Blake for allowing his very busy small reader to be the Home Library logo; to Tony de Saulles for allowing his frogs to do additional work as buttons; and to Polly Dunbar for showing how books can make us all fly on the Home Page.

Thank you everyone!
