PSA_2629It’s that time of year when our hearts swell. It’s like Christmas, and we get to feel like Santa Claus, giving more than 45,000 books away to children all over Athens, Atlanta, and Warrenton.

Join us as we help children select and count their books and record their feedback on our book selection. This is the ultimate volunteer experience! Share in the joy of a Books for Keeps distribution by signing up to volunteer with us.

No special skills are required; training is provided in the first 10 minutes of each shift – so the most important requirement is to show up on time! Sign up for a shift via Community Connection at this link.

If you are part of a group that would like to adopt an entire shift (8 to 12 volunteers), please email Rachel Watkins to sign up: rachel@booksforkeeps.org. Available shifts will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. There is limited space in each shift, so please don’t delay!
