Gently Used Books Open House - Dec 15th

On Friday, December 15th, 2023, Reach Out and Read Minnesota will be holding an open house at our storage facility for gently used books. Our doors will be open for our clinic partners to browse  and select books to bring back to clinic sites for supplementary use, including books to give to children (including older siblings) outside of our program's age range,  to give at sick visits, and to stock waiting rooms little free libraries, and exam rooms. Please see the details below. 

Book Pick-up for Clinics

Reach Out and Read Minnesota is offering gently used books for any clinic staff to pick up from our storage site in Bloomington on Friday, December 15th from 9:30am-12pm. You can drop by anytime during these hours to collect books. Books included are birth-young adult, however, we cannot guarantee the availability of a certain age group.

Please reach out to our Program Coordinator, Eleanor GrandPre, at if you are planning to come that day and we will send directions to the storage site.

Please not that this is a new storage site, just about one mile from our previous site in Richfield.

If you have your own boxes to transport books, please bring them as we may not have boxes available..

For those clinics in outside the Twin Cities metro, we are happy to work with you on getting used books to you the next time someone from your clinic is in the area.

Thank you, and please let us know if you have any questions! 

An adult and child point to a book. Only their hands and the book are visible.
