Drop-off Locations

October Book Drive Month is here!

If you haven’t signed up to host a book drive, it’s not too late!

Hosting a book drive is an easy two-step process:

Place an empty box in your garage or your workplace’s lobby.
Email your co-workers, neighbors, family and friends and let them you’re hosting a book drive for Books for Keeps!

That’s it!

Simple, right?! By hosting a book drive, you’ll help us reach an audience that we’ve never reached before, and it’s a great way for people to do a little spring cleaning in October.

If you, your business, your church, or a civic group you belong to would like to host a book drive, please email Merryn at merrynwalker@yahoo.com to sign up and to receive an electronic copy of book drive poster sign!


While we’re on the topic, we wanted to say THANK YOU to the groups that are currently hosting a book drive for us. We appreciate you!

If you would rather donate books instead, here are the groups that already have book drives underway:

Central Clarke High School
Classic City Lions Club
Delta Zeta
