You can donate your children’s books via our book drop 24/7 at 2006 Greenbrook Parkway, Austin, TX 78723.

Please be sure to complete this online form to notify us of your book donation. 

Children arguably need books now more than ever. While we can’t continue face-to-face book giving as a program model, we are pivoting to a home delivery model: BookSpring Delivered. We need your help to reach the right kids with the right books at the right time. You can donate your new or gently used books or make a gift toward our Covid-19 response initiative.  All proceeds benefit BookSpring Delivered.
