Run a Dream Big Book Drive

Are you interested in collecting books for Book Harvest's 13th annual Dream Big Book Drive? You can have a traditional drive, an online drive, or a mix of both! All books donated/collected/purchased between December 1, 2023 through January 31, 2024 will count toward our Dream Big Book Drive total.

A book drive is a terrific service project for schools, workplaces, congregations, civic groups, neighborhoods, book clubs, and scout troops.

Check out the Dream Big Book Drive 2022-2023 Toolkit!

Book Harvest gladly accepts new and gently used children’s books for young readers ages 0-18. We especially love donations of board books, picture books, Spanish and bilingual books, and books that portray ALL children, honoring diverse backgrounds, languages, abilities, and perspectives, and including stories by and about people of color.
