Books change lives. One of the biggest obstacles to literacy is the scarcity of books in the home. In fact, two thirds of low-income families own no books for their children.
But you could make a difference, just by gathering up books your family and friends no longer need, and helping them find a new home. BookSpring works throughout the greater Austin area to collect tens of thousands of books to give to children of low-income families.
It’s easy to set up a book drive at your workplace, school, or just around your neighborhood. We accept donations of new and gently used books year round!
You will receive a tax receipt which details the total number of books donated. For personal service, drop by our offices between 10-4 pm M-F, and we can help you carry boxes. Or, drop smaller donations in our Book Drop anytime.
