Book Donations


Books Are Wings’ programs are supported by the generosity of many individuals and groups who have donated new and “gently used” books. Books Are Wings collects CHILDREN’s books ages birth to teen.

“Hosting a book drive felt like such an easy first step in promoting Books Are Wings’ efforts for children, community service, and literacy. Our children are Rhode Island’s future, and their education starts with reading skills. I encourage everyone to host a book drive or sponsor a book party.”

~ United Way of Rhode Island

  1. Hello my name is Emma Rathbun I am a senior at North Providence High School. I have a love for reading and books and am organizing a book drive as part of my senior project on how reading is both beneficial and influential to children and young adults. I was hoping to make a donation to your organization as part of this book drive. Please advise on the steps I would need to do so. Thank you very much, Emma Rathbun

    I have a complete set of original Nancy Drew books, all in great shape! There are about 50 books! I read them all (as did my mother!) when I was a teenager. Are you interested these? I would love to donate them to your organization. Thank you!
