Used Book Drive

Are your family bookshelves becoming overrun with books you no longer want to keep or your kids have outgrown? Now’s your chance to pass them on!

Bring your gently used books to Children’s Book World on August 15th and 16th, and they will be donated to Tree House Books, a nonprofit organization in North Central Philadelphia working to promote literacy in their community. All levels of gently used books are welcome, both children’s and adults’, but please no cookbooks or self help titles.

Through a community bookstore, after school programs, summer camp, and the Words on Wheels program, Tree House Books has encouraged reading and distributed thousands of books in North Philadelphia.

To learn more about Tree House Books, their programs, and how to volunteer, visit their website.
