October Book Donation Update: 

We are thrilled at the incredible response from September's Big Book DRIVE event! Thanks to the generosity of the Nashville community, we exceeded our goal of collecting 10,000 books and have filled three warehouse spaces with books waiting to be shared with kids (yes, we are jumping for joy over here)! In light of this, we are pausing incoming book donations through the month of October. Please hang onto any books you may wish to donate - we will definitely need more SOON. Check back here and on our social media for updates.

We need volunteers to help us sort and process all these books! Please visit our SignUpGenius to view available volunteer opportunities.

We are back at NPT!

We are once again operating out of the Nashville Public Television Building at 161 Rains Ave. Nashville, TN 37203.  When we are back to accepting donations again, books can be dropped off at NPT. Book requests can also be picked up at NPT. 

If you have any questions about submitting a book request or dropping off a book donation, please email books@bookem-kids.org or call us at (615) 255-1820.
