Host A Book Drive

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

The Library Foundation works with businesses, school groups, and community organizations to collect new books to be distributed through our Ready to Read Program. The books received through your book drives are used to fill our Ready to Read Literacy Kits, mini libraries located throughout the county, and during outreach visits conducted by our children’s librarians. The Foundation will distribute well over 20,000 books in 2013. With your help, we can help build early literacy skills for more children in our community.

Setting up a book drive is easy:

Step 1: Get Organized
Step 2: Set Up a Committee of Volunteers
Step 3: Plan Where and When to Hold Your Book Drive
Step 5: Set Up Your Collection Site
Step 6: Promote Your Book Drive
Step 7: Turn in Your Books

If you are interested to host a book drive please fill out the Book Drive Application and submit to the Foundation for review. 

Or for more details or questions please reference our Book Drive Tool Kit or contact Extension Services Specialist, Karen Guccione-Englert at
