Book Drive: September 13 through October 9

Our branches will be collecting new and gently used children’s books this fall.

Donations will be accepted at all four of our public branches. Please leave your donation by the display in the lobby. All books will be donated to The Little Bit Foundation to distribute to children at area schools.

You can also purchase books directly through The Little Bit Foundation’s Amazon Wishlist.

Why donate books?

Having at least 10 books in an at-home library is directly linked to a marked increase in literacy rates. Yet, for children in low-income neighborhoods, the book-to-child ratio is one book for every 300 children. Your donation can help close the gap for St. Louis students experiencing poverty.
