ORGANIZATION: Children's Book Project

CBP Distributing Books

We rely on volunteers to organize children's book drives so we can keep giving away new and like-new, culturally relevant, high interest books to children who need them in Northern and Central California - all year round.

A children's book drive is easy to organize, helps build children's literacy, keeps books circulating, and generates good vibes!

You can run a drive for any duration of your choosing - some last only a few hours at a specific event, others take weeks, months, or are ongoing. It's entirely up to you!

Visit childrensbookproject.org/give-books/ for our donation guidelines and procedures, and click on Organize a Book Drive at the bottom of that page for more details.

Thank you!

About Children's Book Project


2166 Palou Avenue, Book Bank (not a mailing address), San Francisco, CA 94124, US

Mission Statement

Children's Book Project gives free books to children who need them for equity in literacy, learning, and life.


Since 1992, Children's Book Project has given away over 3.16 million books to Title 1 schools, public health clinics, shelters, public housing, community organizations, and others serving hundreds of thousands of under-resourced children throughout 35 California counties. Educators, caseworkers, and community service providers visit our Book Bank in San Francisco year-round to select the free books they need for the children they serve.

Literacy attainment is directly tied to academic achievement and lifetime outcomes, yet children in economically disadvantaged communities do not have the same access to books as their more affluent peers. Children’s Book Project is committed to closing the opportunity gap and lifting up our community by raising readers.
