This Semester, Organize a Book Drive!

  • Aug 27, 2015


Everybody loves a good book drive. Why? Lots of reasons.

For one thing, deep down inside, people like to share. People also like books, and chances are they have a few volumes lying around that would be of much more use in someone’s hands than they are on a shelf collecting dust. Moreover, the people who will eventually receive and dive-into those generously-donated books are usually the sort who truly value them.

So it’s a win-win.

An that’s not even taking into account the good will generated by the effort, or the feeling of accomplishment enjoyed by the folks who organized the book drive in the first place.

And that’s where you come in—teacher, student, administrator, parent, librarian, or just plain interested. You’re the one who is going to seek out willing partners and get this thing rolling. But first, you’re going to pay a visit to the official web site of United We Serve, where you’ll find a terrific toolkit that will help you mount the best book drive ever.

And once you do, please be sure to tell us all about it on Twitter.
