Book Drive

Book Drive

Help us collect 5,000 books to build a lifelong love of reading for children in Northern Utah. This huge goal is in partnership with United Way of Northern Utah's Read Across America initiatives. Books will be distributed through Read Across America celebrations and through Little Neighborhood Libraries .

Access to Books Can Change Lives

  • Access to quality, age-appropriate books is key to developing reading skills.
  • Nearly two-thirds of low-income families have no books at home.
  • Currently more than half of Ogden School District 3rd graders read below grade level.
  • Reading proficiently by the end of 3rd grade is one of the most important predictors of graduating from high school.

What Books Should I Donate?

Any books in NEW or LIKE NEW condition are welcome. The greatest need for donations are for elementary age children; however, Read Across America celebrations will incorporate pre-K through high school students. Little Neighborhood Libraries will be for readers of all ages.

Books in Spanish are especially appreciated.

Can I provide Monetary Donations Instead?

Absolutely! Donate to our virtual drive below and all donations will be used to purchase books for Read Across America initiatives. Meeting this goal of $1,000 will provide books for every student in one elementary school.


We have raised $485.00 of our $1,000.00  goal.
