Note: Due to temporary changes in clinic procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot currently distribute used books at our partner clinics. For the time being, we are suspending all donations of used books. We can, as always, continue to accept donations of new books to be used in our core program. We hope to return to our regular operations as soon as possible. In the meantime, we are open to new collaborations to get the used books that we have on-hand into the hands of families. If you, or your organization, is in need of quality used children's books, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Books are at the core of our program. We give out new, specially selected books to children in our program at each of their well-child visits from 6 months to 5 years old. However there is much more we can do. Donations of used books allow us to create literacy rich waiting rooms at our partner clinics, help us build families' home libraries, and can be given to older children or children at sick visits.
We accept children's books for all ages, from board books to chapter books. We cannot accept badly worn books, or books that contain religious themes, violence, or promote unhealthy habits.
Note Spring 2020: please note that, due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we may not be able to accept all used book donations. Please check in with us at a later date and we'll be happy to work out a plan to receive the books in the future.
