Together we’re building the future of the Bay Area
Support young readers this holiday season by purchasing and donating a new, age-appropriate book from Alexander Book Company. All donations will go to:
The Children’s Book Project, which gives books to children who need them for equity in literacy, learning, and life.
They aim to create a more socially just world by providing books for free to under-resourced children. Literacy attainment is directly tied to academic achievement and lifetime outcomes, yet children in economically disadvantaged communities do not have the same access to books as their more affluent peers. The Children’s Book Project is committed to closing the opportunity gap and lifting up our community by raising readers. That is why we're hosting a book drive partnership with Children's Book Project and Alexander Book Company.
Will you join us in trying to collect 500 books for students?
Books can be bought in-store from Alexander Book Company, or purchased on our website and we will have them sent directly to Children's Book Project. We've selected some titles to get you started (below). If you would rather select other books you are welcome to do so, just put "Children's Book Project donation drive" in your order note. If you would like us select books on your behalf, just call the store and ask for Bonnie in the children's book department and we'll work with whatever dollar amount you would like to donate.
