BookSpring partners with organizations who want to organize their own book gifting event by offering the Open Book program, which provides free books locally to groups that work with low income families in Central Texas as they are available. Groups may receive a selection of good quality books counted and sorted into general groups (board books, chapter books, picture books, and young adult) to supplement your efforts, and you will need to come to our HQ or Warehouse to pick them up. Preference is given to high needs areas that we are not currently serving through other programs. First come first serve, and supplies are limited.
We ask you that you distribute the books so that the child can choose their own titles and supply us with some basic information to help us match your children’s interests. You must not resell or charge families directly for these books. In exchange for these free books, we request that you help promote BookSpring throughout your organization, as well as on social media, and we will do the same for you! More details about this will come after you apply. If this option sounds right for you, please apply below!
Help for Less Stress, More Success
However, does this event sound like too much work for you to do on your own? If so, please visit our Programs page to learn more about our engaging parent and child-centered activities and highly curated books for a small program fee. By participating through these programs, you gain BookSpring’s expertise in sorting, leveling, and labeling donated books to help your staff get the right books to the right child every time.
Building Capacity for Everyone
Alternatively, you might also consider organizing a Book Drive to Benefit BookSpring, which will help keep the books flowing to our network of over 200 community partners, with your efforts promoting other book giveaways across our community.
It takes everyone working together to help build early literacy in all families, and we hope you’ll join us in launching children into a world of reading!
