It’s our favorite way to kick off the spring- with Book Drive Month. Every spring, we kick up our community outreach and prepare for our annual book sale by invited community partners and new friends to host a book drive to benefit Books for Keeps. Book drives are our favorite way to share our passion with brand new community members!

This spring, we have another amazing group of book drive participants:

In addition to these 18 book drives happening in March, our friends at Cotton Patch Quilters will be hosting a drive this summer in conjunction with First Presbyterian Church of Athens. This is an annual drive hosted by CPQ that last year gathered CARLOADS of books!!

We are thrilled to have such an incredible level of book drive participation in Athens and surrounding communities. And best of all, MANY of these businesses and organizations are first-time participants. That is a lot of new faces that will be learning about our program through these partners, and we are more grateful for that than we can say!

If you pop into one of these businesses or work with one of these organizations, please thank them for their support of Books for Keeps. These incredible folks help make our program possible!
