Book Drive! 11 Days Remain!

SLA San Diego Members,

Just a reminder that only 11 days remain for our book drive!  Time is flying by and soon we will need to collect all the books to deliver to Words Alive!

I had one person let me know they’ve set up a collection at their work and another was even able to send me a book through Amazon shipping!  Please keep working on those donations to that our chapter can help and make a difference for these children in our community!

Below is a breakdown of the basics:

The types of books we are looking for:

  • books for children ages 0-8 years in English and Spanish.

What they cannot use: adults books, reference, textbooks self-help, cookbooks, activity books for kids, overly worn/damaged books, or magazines

Our drive will run through the months of June and July, culminating in a donation collection at during the July Happy Hour, most likely July 21st). 

If you cannot make this deadline please contact Isabelle or myself to arrange to ship it to us or to to arrange another pickup/drop off option.

Tips:

  • Find gently used books a library sales, garage sales, and Salvation Army book stores
  • Shop Better World Books or Amazon for deals on kids books, eliminating the need to browse at stores
  • Check out the Barnes & Noble “Bargain Books” and sale bins
  • Check in with friends and family with children who might have outgrown their old books
  • Use social media to help spread the word! Use Facebook, Instagram and/or Snapchat to post a picture of yourself with your donation of books and ask others to help support your cause

Thank you,

Ana Bellini

SLA-SD Student Liaison
