Books for Keeps collects books of every kind throughout the year, and many donors contribute books specifically for us to use for fundraising. We’re selling thousands of books we can’t use for our program, to generate funds for books we can use. We don’t want to put these books back in storage for another year, so you can count on rock-bottom prices.

We’ll also be selling Books for Keeps tote bags to raise funds for the student totes we’ll need next May. Sponsorship spots are available on the back of the bag.

Where: 1658 South Lumpkin Street, in Five Points across from EarthFare

Donation Drop-Off Day: Saturday Oct. 15th, 9:00 – 12:00
Bring your books, whether for kids or adults, to 1658 South Lumpkin Street. We’ll have volunteers on hand to unload your books and provide tax receipts.
