Create a Library

A major way to support and make a lasting impact is by becoming a Book Drive Organizer.  Throughout the year we offer several opportunities to join 30 – 60 other Book Drive Organizers around North America (USA and Canada) in creating libraries. We focus on select countries that are empowered through our Partners to find and select library recipients in communities and schools that do not have a library and very minimal reading material that does not sufficiently meet the need and criteria for a proper learning experience to teach literacy. Getting books into the hands of young readers is the essence of who we are. But we need the help of hundreds of Book Drive Organizers each year.

Help put books in the hands of youth today by visiting our Book Drive webpage and signing up to create a library today!

Our mailing dates are staggered throughout the year, and sign-ups open approximately four months before the mailing dates.
