Do you have any children's books that are ready to be passed on to another child? From August 28th - September 15th, SMART Reading is hosting a book drive in the South Valley area! Donations can be dropped off at the SMART Springfield office at 500 Main St., Suite B Springfield, OR 97477.
Before coming to the office, please contact Laurie to make a drop-off appointment: call 541-600-8035 or email
Children's books needed:
  • New books
  • Gently used books
  • Preschool, elementary school, and middle school age books
  • Spanish language books
Not accepted: magazines, coloring books, encyclopedias, textbooks, ex-library books, ex-school library books, classroom sets (marked with names)
All collected books will be inspected and cleaned by volunteers during a pop-up Children's Book Bank cleaning session, and then distributed to local kids though free book fairs during after-school programs.
Interested in hosting your own book drive or setting up a donation box in your office, school, or community organization? We have a printable book drive collection poster and more information about hosting a book drive on the Children's Book Bank Book Drive page.
