How You Can Help


Your old favorite book could be someone's new favorite.




Novels are the most popular – all genres, even the classics!
Popular authors include Tom Clancy, Dean Koontz, JK Rowling – if you enjoyed the book, our friends probably will too!

Also: Bibles (Spanish and English), children’s books, ACT/SAT workbooks, textbooks, coloring books, and blank journals

We would love your gently used non-prescription readers! Non-prescription reading glasses that you can purchase at local stores are needed more often than any other prescription lenses.
