Run A Book Drive

Open Books is always in need of high quality used books to support our stores, programs, and book grants! Check out these steps below to run your book drive:

  1. Pick dates and a place – we recommend running your book drive for 2-4 weeks, or coordinating it with an event if you have enough lead time. We will happily provide boxes to help with your collecting.
  2. Spread the word.
  3. Drop your books off, or arrange to have us pick them up!

Is your team hybrid or fully remote? We also offer “virtual book drives” through our Gift of Books program where team members to buy-to-grant high interest titles that our youth and families will love.
