You can help by collecting gently used or new children’s books for our partner organization through book drives at your business, school, church, or community group.

 

In the United States, the U.S. post office offers a media mail rate where a 30 lb box (70-100 books) can be shipped for approximately $166 USD.

 

Books can be sent to:

A to Z Literacy Movement

PO Box 2483

Crystal Lake, IL 60039

 

If you would like to drop the books off or would like to arrange to have us pick them up, please contact us.
