Annual Book Donation

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body


Books play a quintessential role in everyone’s life by introducing them to a world of imagination, providing knowledge of the outside world, improving reading habits, enhancing writing and speaking skills, as well as boosting memory and intelligence.

They’ve transported us to new places, helped us find solutions to our problems and often provided an avenue to escape reality. For the less fortunate, books are considered a luxury and often not an affordable choice to buy them.

Books and education play a significant role in providing knowledge to people. In many cases, opportunities to avail education are lacking, while in other cases, students don’t have access to books and essential reference materials.

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body

By donating your books, you give them a chance to be reused and repurposed by someone else instead of sitting untouched on a bookshelf or getting dumped into a landfill.
