For Families

Parents, we are here for you – with books! We know that access to books is fundamental to keeping learning alive for every child – for maintaining and improving reading skills, for finding comfort in a bedtime story, and for fueling imaginations and providing opportunities for adventures.  That’s why we are providing contactless Grab-and-Go book pickups at our Rapid Response Center twice per week! See specific dates/times below.

Our Rapid Response Center is located next to our headquarters, in the Rockwood Shopping Center at 2501 University Drive in Durham. See the calendar below for the Grab-and Go schedule. When you arrive, please follow the instructions on the sign: remain in your car and call (252) 497-BOOK. A volunteer will answer your call, ask the ages of your children, and bring out bags of age-appropriate books to place in your car.

Have you already visited Grab-and-Go? We’d love to have your feedback. Please take three minutes to complete this survey in English or Spanish and let us know how your visit went!
