Stacks of books on a table

Annual Book Drive

Over the last four years, we have helped local elementary schools add over 1000 books to their collection.

We select various books, authors, illustrators, and subjects through multiple sources to add to our wish list. Donors who shop locally, through independent bookstores, or through our wish list link help make a bigger difference in our community. Help our libraries reflect the cultures, perspectives, and traditions of our community. The book drive kicks off with the fall semester and runs through the end of October, allowing deliveries to local schools in early November.
