Book Drive for Books Between Kids

Help Houston's at-risk children build their own home libraries by bringing new or gently used books to Sumners Hall by May 31. Research has shown that children growing up in homes without books, where books are considered a luxury, are less likely to complete a basic education than their peers who do have books available at home (University of Nevada, 2010). You can help by donating books to our Books Between Kids book drive.

What kind of books are we looking for?

  • Story books
  • Chapter books
  • Leveled readers
  • Children’s non-fiction books (that kids would pick out to read for fun)

  • YA Novels
