Give Your Books a New Home

Donate Your Books

Recycle your children’s books by donating them. We need good quality second hand books for infants, toddlers, preschool, and elementary school aged children.

Research shows children growing up in homes with at least 20 books get 3 more years of education than children from bookless homes. Your donation will help build home libraries, which contribute to success in school and in life. 

We team up with healthcare, education, and community partners to reach the right kids with the right books at the right time!
