Request Books



The Kids’ Book Bank gives gently-used children’s books to organizations that can distribute them to children and families in need.  We do not give books to individuals. We have a mixed inventory of books ranging from board books to young adult titles.  We prepack boxes by reading level and we do not take requests for specific titles. Books must be picked up by appointment at the Kids’ Book Bank, 3635 Perkins Avenue in Midtown Cleveland.


To request books, please REGISTER your organization first and then REQUEST BOOKS.  Once an organization is registered, you can simply REQUEST BOOKS going forward.  We will get back to you shortly after we receive your request. We may not be able to fulfill all book requests but will try to accommodate your needs. Thank you for your patience as we work through our processes.
