Golden Belt Campus, Durham NC
800 Taylor St, Durham, NC 27701


Every year on MLK Day, we celebrate the power of community and our big dream of books and literacy for all kids with our biggest event of the year: Dream Big! The celebration is part book drive, part volunteer event, part community partner fair, part festival, and all party and fun!


Run a Big Book Drive

Are you interested in collecting books for Book Harvest's 12th annual Dream Big Book Drive? You can have a traditional drive, an online drive, or a mix of both! All books donated/collected/purchased between December 1, 2022 through January 31, 2023 will count toward our Dream Big Book Drive total.

A book drive is a terrific service project for schools, workplaces, congregations, civic groups, neighborhoods, book clubs, and scout troops.

Book Harvest gladly accepts new and gently used children’s books for young readers ages 0-18. We especially love donations of board books, picture books, Spanish and bilingual books, and books that portray ALL children, honoring diverse backgrounds, languages, abilities, and perspectives, and including stories by and about people of color.

Questions?  Contact us at (252) 497-BOOK, or email Book Harvest’s Associate Director of Communications and Marketing, Benay Hicks, at benay@bookharvest.org.
