More importantly, this effort provides a great opportunity for kids to help kids. All books collected are sorted and redistributed to other organizations and schools who need your help.

Participating is as easy as 1-2-3

2-  Spread the word that you'll be collecting new and gently-used children's books appropriate for infants to 14-year-olds.

3-  Count the books and report your results by March 22, 2017.    

After your drive, donated books will be picked up by a Hooked on Books volunteer.
