Run a Dream Big Book Drive
Join the biggest community book drive of the year! We invite individuals, groups, and organizations to collect books then bring them to the 2022 Dream Big Book Drive! On MLK Day every year, we collect tens of thousands of books thanks to our wonderful community. All books collected through Dream Big Book Drives between December 1, 2021 through January 31, 2022 will count toward our 2022 Dream Big total.
Follow the simple steps below and start collecting books in your neighborhood, workplace, congregation, civic group, sports team…the possibilities are endless!
Get a tub/bin/basket and set up your book drive collection site. Choose a high-traffic location - your front porch, your office, your neighborhood gathering spot. Print a sign for your book drive collection bins.
Promote your book drive! Use this graphic to share the news of your drive with friends, family, and colleagues. Include this image in your emails, on your social media, on your website, and in your printed materials.
Deliver the books! You can bring your books to our Dream Big Book drive event on January 17, 2022. You can also drop them anytime, 24/7, in the collection bins outside our office at 2501 University Drive in the Rockwood Shopping Center in Durham. They will still count toward our Dream Big total as long as you let us know they're part of a book drive when you drop them off.
Do you live outside central North Carolina but want to support our cause? Run your Dream Big book drive wherever you are, and then send us your collected books via USPS media mail! Our shipping address is:
2501 University Drive
Durham, NC 27707
