Open Books and State Farm® Book Drive

Be a Good Neighbor and Turn Caring Into Doing Today!

Join State Farm in a Book Drive for Literacy!

During the Month of November, stop by any of the 24 State Farm Agents listed below and donate books for all ages to benefit Open Books's Literacy and Book Granting Programs.

The Power of Donated Books

Each year, generous readers donate hundreds of thousands of books to support literacy. We sell those books in our stores and online to help fund our programs, and use and give them away in our literacy and book grant programs. Our book department produces zero waste, and we give away 2.5 books for every 3 we sell.

We welcome any sellable book in good condition. This includes fiction, nonfiction, craft books, cookbooks, children’s books, and more! We also accept LPs, CDs, and DVDs in good playable condition. Since we give away so many children’s books, we are always in need of more high quality titles.

Tax Deductible: We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit, so all donations are fully tax deductible. Looking for a receipt for your donation? Here you go!
