New & Gently Used Book Drive

Step One (pre-work) – assign different members of your group to collect or purchase different categories of books (fiction/non-fiction/picture books/easy readers of different levels/chapter books/ books in Spanish/ books in English & Spanish, etc.).

Step Two – set a date for folks to bring their donations in and make it a party!

Step Three – one of the events at the party is an assembly project.  You may want to personalize the books in some way – maybe put an encouraging note in each book or make and decorate bookmarks.

Step Four – Set up a delivery day and time.  You may contact one of the Site Coordinators directly via email (addresses are on this website) or you can email CIS Administrator, Jay Swedenborg.

Step Five – make the delivery and meet a CIS staff member!
