A Book of Their Own Holiday Book Drive for Madison Reading Project

Event date: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018 - 2:15pm

This holiday season, we are partnering with Madison Reading Project (MRP) for a book drive! Madison Reading Project, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is looking for books for children from babies to about 12 years old, which means you have a wealth of childrens' literature to choose from! In general, MRP is looking for books in English, Spanish and Hmong, current releases, popular chapter book series, board books for babies/young toddlers, and chapter books, as well as books depicting diverse children engaged in everyday activities.

MRP is happy to accept any childrens' books in good condition. However, they cannot accept damaged books, books with religious or holiday themes, toys, activity or coloring books, dictionaries, 'play sound' books, teaching or homeschool materials, books with harmful stereotypes, or older/outdated nonfiction books.

Donations for the book drive can be mailed or brought to A Room of One's Own. Further, any books you purchase through A Room of One’s Own's book drive will be 20% off. If purchasing through our website, please use coupon code MRPDONATION at checkout, and choose the 'pick up in store' shipping option. You don't have to actually pick it up in store--we will know to donate all orders with this coupon code directly to the drive.

If you donate to the book drive, we are also happy to offer 20% off any one item you wish to purchase for yourself. We will contact all donors with a special coupon code to use on a separate web order, or if you are local you can just stop in the store and let us know your donation's order # to take your discount in store.
