Books for Kids

BookVan
BagOBooks

We want to ensure that all children and families have access to books. Our book van visits low-income housing units, schools, after-school programs, and community events to promote reading. Contact us to schedule a stop or host a Literacy Bookshelf.

Low-Contact Deliveries: We partner with schools, daycares, Early Learning Centers, and other community partners to bring books to the kids being served. Interested in scheduling a book delivery for your site? Contact us using the link below!

Books for the Quarantine: A play on our "Books for the Break," program! We partner with schools and food banks to deliver thousands of books to homeless and low-income children. Interested in scheduling a book delivery for your site? Contact us using the link below!

Bag O' Books: We are taking individual book orders to be picked up at our office in Lacey or at the 4H WSU extension in Shelton with little to no contact. Interested in placing a Bag O' Books order? Fill out the order form using the Thurston or Mason county link below!
