Make a One-time Donation
Your donation allows us to purchase high-interest, diverse books for children from pre-K through high school. Every dollar you donate provides a book for a child!
"Students get so excited when they get to choose a book to keep. Many can't believe that they actually get to keep it, and sometimes ask me several times if they really don't have to return it. The day students choose a book, they want to spend the whole day reading it! I have observed this ownership results in an enjoyment for reading that students may not have otherwise."
Karen Zerzan, Kraxberger Middle School
We accept all books with a few exceptions. New and gently-used children’s books will go directly to kids who need them; books for adults (literature, cookbooks, etc.) will be sold to help fund our mission. Team up with your workplace or service group to host a book drive.
Please visit our Donate Books page to learn more.
