Book Boxes

Bringing Books to Neighborhoods


Book Harvest Book Boxes are filled with dozens of new and gently used, culturally inclusive children’s books. The brightly colored green and orange boxes are regularly stocked with books from Book Harvest, ensuring that children and families have reliable, steady access to high-quality books to harvest and keep. Our goal is to provide more children with the opportunities to build home libraries – an essential foundation for language and literacy development.

Book Boxes launched in early 2021 with a single box, and quickly expanded to over 10 boxes around the community! Our team is excited to bring books to the community in this way...keep your eyes open for new green and orange Book Boxes throughout Durham!

We invite you to visit the Book Boxes as often as you’d like. They are all outdoors and accessible to families. Below are current Book Box locations.
