Help us write the next chapter!

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! Check out our in person and virtual volunteer opportunities or reach out to us directly,!

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, go here to reserve your donation appointment!

Visit our donation page, we appreciate your support! 

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.
