Book Donations

The Books for Kids Build-a-Home-Library Program strives to accomplish a “print-rich environment” in the homes of the children that we serve at our library sites. A print-rich environment consists of a minimum of five age-appropriate books at home. Although Books for Kids loves to provide the books you collect to the children we serve, we have strict guidelines on the kinds and quantities of books we can accept. Due to space constraints, we ask kindly that you DO NOT send any books to the Books for Kids office without contacting us first.

Collecting books is a fun way to support Books for Kids and engage your family, friends, community or office. Consider asking for book or monetary donations at your next:
• Birthday Party
• Holiday Party
• Family Reunion
• Anniversary Party
• Baby Shower
• Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah

Please read these comprehensive guidelines and contact the Books for Kids office (212-760-2665 or info@booksforkids.org) before arranging any kind of collection or book drive.
