Attend a Fundraising Event

Whether you shop at our book sales (currently accepting appointments to shop) or attend a Dine for Dollars event, you're helping to ensure that kids in Clackamas County get books to enjoy at home.

"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

Donate Books

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.


Come to a cleaning session. Gather some friends or co-workers, and contact us to arrange to have your own, personal cleaning party.

(On hold until further notice.)


Support children's literacy just by doing your shopping. It costs you nothing and doesn't affect your personal rewards!
