As of today, Book Harvest has provided kids in our community with 211,945 books so far this year! Books are flying off of our shelves, which means it’s time to replenish our stock. Luckily, it’s time for the 12th annual Dream Big Book Drive — the biggest children’s book drive in the Triangle!
Book Harvest’s Dream Big Book Drive is a community effort to collect tens of thousands of children’s books throughout December and January, culminating in the Dream Big Book Drive and Community Celebration on MLK Day — January 16, 2023 from 1-4 PM.
While our big event is on January 16, all books donated between December 1, 2022 and January 31, 2023 will count toward our 2023 Dream Big total! That means there are SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES for book drives!
Ultimately, the sky is the limit! And we’re here to help. Book drives can be online, in person, or a mix of both! Online book drives will once again be conducted through The Regulator Book Shop, an independent book store in Durham. Just let us know what kind of drive you would like to run when you register.
Plus, our book drive yard signs are still available, as modeled by our CEO’s beloved dog, Wonton.
