Scholastic Literacy Partnerships and FirstBook USA are making deeply-discounted books available to Books for Keeps. Titles we need range from $1-$3 each for NEW books!
We've been saving all year for this moment. We're assessing our inventory of books to figure out which books we'll need to purchase to round out our inventory in areas where donations are lagging.
For example, "shark books" were one of the top requests from 1st and 2nd graders last May. We'd hoped to have 500 or more in inventory this year, but we have < 50.
We were dreadfully short in the sports category last year, and the kids let us know it, too. They asked for basketball and football books - about current athletes. We have < 50 of those, too... for over 2,000 students.
While we assess our inventory, we're also assessing our bank account. Can you contribute to our Deep-Discount Purchase Fund? You'll make it that much more likely we're able to provide books that our most reluctant readers have asked for.
Mail your tax deductible check, made payable to Books for Keeps, to PO Box 49761, Athens, GA 30604. Or, use the "Donate" button at the top-right side of the page to donate online.
