Help us ensure that all students, regardless of their zip code, have amazing books at school and at home!
Host a book drive
Every teacher in Philadelphia is required to have a library in their classroom, yet they aren't given a budget to create one. Help us support our teachers by providing them with books their students will love!
Every book helps! Every book in the Book Bank is donated. Educators from across the city come to get books for their classroom libraries and to send home with their students.
During the 2017-2018 school year we distributed over 68,000 books to the community. We received around 19,000 books in donations. Please help us make sure we have enough books to fill the need!
You can plan a Book Drive during a family event, through your work or in your community. Click here for our Book Drive Tool Kit that provides you with all the information needed to host a successful Book Drive!
Don't forget to bring your completed Book Donation Submission Form with you when you drop off your donation at the Book Bank!
