Check your Bookshelf
Your shelf might need room for some new books. Joy of Reading will accept as few or as many children’s books as you would like to share!
Book Wish List
Our partner schools are in need of non-fiction science and nature-themed books like Magic School Bus. Zoo Books and Ranger Rick magazines are also in demand. Check out the full book list here.
Talk to your Friends
Tell your friends about Joy of Reading and let them know you can find a new home for their gently-used books.
Special Day Gifts
In lieu of gifts, ask your guests to bring a book (or books!) to donate.
Organize a Book drive
Host a book drive with your class or school, club, neighborhood, office or workplace. Decide on dates and create a place to collect the books. Get the word out with posters, with email or online, and know you’re serving children with limited access to books.
Sort and Label
Watch for our upcoming events to sort books with our simple reading level colors and label books before they are donated to our school and library partners.
Half Price Books and Value Village are inexpensive sources for books. We can shop for specific book types or reading levels requested by our literacy partners.
In Your Honor Monetary Gift
Honor someone special with a gift to Joy of Reading! Your donation can purchase local language books, cover transportation costs to remote schools, sustain a mobile library, print labels and other materials. The joy of reading is a reality for more children as we support our schools, libraries and partners in India and Nepal.
