How to Organize a Book Drive

  1. Establece un objetivo: Reúne a tu escuela o empresa para lograr un objetivo significativo. Enseñe a sus alumnos o empleados sobre la filantropía y anímelos a compartir su amor por la lectura con los niños de zonas desfavorecidas.
  2. Elige tus fechas: Two to four weeks is the perfect time for your book drive. Let everyone know about it through email and social media.
  3. Preparados: Set up collection bins in a high-traffic area. Challenge each other to see who collects the most books! You can create internal competition among grade levels in a school or departments in a corporate office.
  4. Announce your drive:  Signage is everything! Hang posters and take photos of your collection bins or students, staff, or parents donating books. You can download, print, and share these customizable flyers:
  5. Corre la voz: Tag us on social media (@bookspringatx), and we will give you a shout-out! Please email us at communications@bookspring.org with photos and details to be featured in our newsletter or social media!
  6. Concluya: Contact us at give@bookspring.org to set up a delivery of the books! Don’t forget to announce to everyone how many books were collected and thank everyone for their participation. Please complete the donation form for your tax receipt and formal acknowledgment after your book drive.
