Organize a Book Drive
Organize a book drive in your company, organization, or community group any time of year! We provide tips, support, and advice.
- Gently used or new picture and board books appropriate for babies through elementary school students, and graphic novels
- Culturally relevant books and Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, Chinese (Mandarin), and Somali language books – click here for a list of our favorites
Books we are unable to re-home: musty or damaged books, magazines, coloring books, encyclopedias, textbooks, ex-library books, ex-school library books, classroom sets, books for adults
Proper boxes protect books and backs! Click here to order inexpensive banker boxes with lids which can be delivered directly to you.
Offer the option of donating online during your book drive. Financial donations help us purchase new culturally relevant and home-language books. Don’t forget to check whether your company matches gifts so you and your team members can increase the impact of your personal donations.
