Yes, we accept book donations!

Do you have books collecting dust?  Are your bookshelves overloaded with books you don't read anymore?  Donate your gently used books to Project READ!

C

Project READ gladly accepts book donations.  Some books are sold through a vendor, with proceeds supporting Project READ, but most books are added to our book donation stock so that we can continue to give away thousands of books each year to children and families in need.

C

You can donate your books at these locations:

C

Project READ (Sinclair Community College, Building 3, Room 142).  Call ahead (937-461-7323) for curbside pick-up.  No need to park!

Local bookstore now supports Project READ

C

The Bookstore @ Antiques Village (651 Lyons Road in Centerville) is now a non-profit bookstore supporting Project READ!

C

For many years, family-owned small business Look At A Book has been a generous supporter of Project READ.  In fact, they've donated over 140,000 books to Project READ during the last seven years!  Now they've taken their support to the next level by donating the The Bookstore @ Antiques Village (formerly called Look At A Book) to Friends of Project READ, a non-profit that collects books and raises funds for Project READ.

C

The bookstore will look the same to loyal customers, but there's a big difference: Now 100% of book sale proceeds support Project READ's literacy programs!  Volunteers stock the store with books donated by the community.

C

Please make the bookstore your first choice when buying books at a big discount!  Most new and gently used books are priced 4 for $12, with some books as low as $1.  In addition to saving a lot of money, you will support literacy programs in the Dayton area with every purchase.
