Run a Book Drive

Cleveland Kids' Book Bank book drive collection bin

We distribute an average of 45,000 books per month, and our need for good-quality, used children’s books is endless. You can help!

Our Book Drive Toolkit makes it easy to run a book drive to collect children’s books at your workplace, school, church, organization, or even in your neighborhood!

  • A book drive is a great service project for kids and students. We also find that corporations and offices love to collect books for us.
  • We especially need books for early childhood through 3rd grade and books showing diversity.
  • Take your book drive virtual by sharing our or Amazon wish list link. Participants can purchase new books and have them sent directly to us.
