Book Drive Month is officially here!

To truly have a successful Book Drive Month, we need additional hosts and locations for book drives!

Can you help, or do you know someone who can? It’s a fun, easy way to help Books for Keeps!

Hosting a book drive can be as simple as placing a box in your garage or the lobby of your workplace, then emailing folks to let them know it’s there. You’ll help us reach people we’ve never reached before, and it’s a fantastic way for people to clean off their bookshelves.

If you, your business, your church, or a civic group you belong to would like to host a book drive, please email Leslie at

While we’re at it, we wanted to say THANK YOU to the groups that already have book drives under way during October:
