We need Menders and Tenders! Book Menders work with us to get the donated books ready for RED Bookshelves! Averaging 3,000 books out each month means we need a LOT of help! Join us during Open Book Reconditioning hours!

We take books written for all ages of children: board books, picture books, leveled readers, early chapter and young adult. If you have books to donate, email to set an appointment!

The RED Bookshelf receives 100% of funds donated at the PayPal Giving Fund.

No dollar amount is too large, or too small. The RED Bookshelf provides books free to the community for an average cost of $2.50 per book. How many books will you provide for children and families in Albany?
