Donate Your Books

Thank you so much for wanting to help.

We'd be delighted to recycle your children's books into the hands of some great kids in need of books. We're looking for quality, gently used children's books appropriate for infants to 18 years of age. We will be happy to provide you with a tax donation receipt.
