A book bank is a place where people can donate gently used books for all ages, from infants all the way up to young adults that can then be distributed to children in need. Books are such an important part of childhood development and it is important to make sure that every child has access to them. All of the books that are donated go through a screening process to make sure they are in good condition before being placed in the book bank.

Why Start a Book Bank?

Book banks are started on the belief that every child deserves access to books. Reading can have a profound impact on a child’s future. Too often, children from low-income families do not have access to the same resources as their wealthier peers. A book bank helps to level the playing field and make sure that all children have an equal opportunity to succeed.

Other Ways You Can Help

You can help by donating books. Book banks accept both new and gently used books for all ages. If you have any children’s books that your family has outgrown, consider donating them to a book bank.

The launch of a new book bank is exciting news for a charity organization. If you have any gently used books that you would like to donate, do not hesitate to get in touch with a local book bank. Book donations are crucial to making sure that every child has access to the books they need to succeed.
