Get on the bandwagon and reuse, reduce, and recycle your gently used children’s books through BookSpring. With us, you gain the peace of mind that they will be going to a deserving new home. We are available to accept donations throughout the week at our offices at 2006 Greenbrook Parkway, Austin, TX, 78723 near Blanton Elementary School. You are welcome to drop by our offices between 10-4 pm M-F, or call to make an appointment for another time. Also, you can leave smaller donations in our Book Drop outside our offices. All donations are eligible as a charitable contribution. BookSpring happily accepts donations of new and gently-used children’s picture books, chapter books, and popular teen and adult books; however, we are unable to accept donations of textbooks, reference books, or used activity books.
Collecting books is a fun way to support BookSpring and engage your family, friends, community or office.

In low income families only 1 in 300 children owns a book. What about the other 299? Children who grow up with steady exposure to books start kindergarten on par or ahead of their peers. Books collected during book drives allow BookSpring to channel books to many children, and distribution points include medical clinics for low income families, community outreach events, children’s shelters, faith-based organizations and libraries in economically disadvantaged areas.
There are many venues through which to sponsor a book drive: schools, corporate giving, youth organizations, a birthday or holiday party, or cleaning out your home bookshelf. Book Drives provide a way for students or service groups to meet volunteer requirements, and BookSpring has all the materials you will need to get started.
BookSpring has distributed tens of thousands of books all over Austin. With your support, you are helping to ensure that every child in Austin will arrive at kindergarten with the critical skills they’ll need to learn to read and succeed in school.
