And the DREAM BIG grand total is…

Each year since 2012, Book Harvest has marked MLK Day with a community-wide celebration of diversity, literacy, and books for all children: the Dream Big Book Drive! On January 15, 2018, we gathered at Durham Central Park to enjoy fabulous entertainment, participate in games and creative family activities, meet some of our favorite mascots, and of course donate LOTS of books and prepare them to be shared with our community’s kids!


  1. We collected 43,172 books!

  2. We served and celebrated alongside 802 fellow community members!

  3. We led 83 book drives in anticipation of the big day!

  4. We raised $60,400 from 66 generous sponsors!

THANK YOU to our fabulous sponsors, our amazing book drive captains, and everyone who joined us in celebration and service on our big day and throughout our Dream Big month!

We already can’t wait for Dream Big 2019…mark your calendars now for Monday, January 21!
