Book Request Update: Organizations who need books in March or April, please submit your requests now.

  • Books needed in March through April 11th must be requested by March 12th and picked up by March 18th.
  • Pickups will be unavailable between March 19th and April 11th.
  • Books needed later in April must be requested by March 27th and picked up April 12th-29th.

We are able to provide one book per child at this time and requests will be filled on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Requested books can be picked up Monday-Thursday by appointment only. Pickups can be scheduled through the appointment calendar after completing a book request. You can also check the calendar for availability before submitting a request. The calendar will be the updated as often as possible, but if there are no slots available, that means we've reached capacity. At that time requests will be put into a queue and we will reach out if the request is able to be filled.

Thank you for all you do to keep Nashville's kids reading!
