Gently Used Children's Books

ReBook Partnerships

Through the ReBook program, BookSpring enlists community-based organizations to distribute pre-sorted, age-leveled, quality-checked gently used books throughout the Central Texas area. There are an estimated 80,000 low-income children in Central Texas. We need the help of professionals who work with families to reach them. Professionals like you.

Reaching Families through People They Trust

If you are a representative of a professional education, health, cultural or social service organization that works with families and children facing life challenges, you are eligible to apply to incorporate these books into your programs for distribution to your clients and beneficiaries. We believe books build literacy and resilience in families and children, we’d like to work with you and your organization or agency to spread these benefits throughout our community.

Now Accepting Applications

BookSpring accepts applications on an ongoing basis for ReBook distribution partnerships. There is no cost for your organization to participate, however, we ask you to supply some basic information to us about how you will be sharing your books. We accept organizations that will distribute the books for ownership and will agree to providing recipients with a choice of books. We offer professional training workshops and instructional materials for your staff and volunteers about how to support parents and caregivers and encourage their confidence and frequency of reading aloud at home. Our goal is to provide enough books for at least 3 per child per year. The entire program is subject to availability, and distributions are not guaranteed.

For more information, contact rebook@bookspring.org.

Building Capacity for Everyone

We also request that you help promote BookSpring throughout your organization, as well as on social media, and we will do the same for you. In addition, you might consider organizing a Book Drive, which will help keep the books flowing. By participating through both programs, you are gaining BookSpring’s expertise in sorting, leveling, and labeling donated books to help your staff get the right books to the right child, every time.
