Sixth Annual Greater Hartford Holiday Book Drive

December 2 – 22, 2019

Change a child’s life this holiday season

Many children in Greater Hartford’s lower-income neighborhoods don’t have a single book to call their own… and it impacts their school performance. Your gift to the Holiday Book Drive opens up a whole new world of discovery, imagination and possibility for a local child in need. 

Donated books should be:

  • For grades pre-K through 4
  • Hardcover or paperback, new or very lightly used
  • General interest (non-religious)
  • Spanish-English bilingual books are welcome
