NEED BOOKS? We organize the books we receive by age range, holidays, special topics, and more—we're sure we can find among our stacks books that would best suit your needs and the needs of your young readers. We also often have teachers' guides, craft books, and other titles ideal for educators. When funds are available, we are pleased to purchase new books for any group of children whose advocates reach out to us.
HAVE BOOKS TO DONATE? Pass along your gently used or new books for babies, children, and young adults our way, and we'll make sure they'll be put to great use. We enthusiastically welcome bilingual or multilingual books so we can better serve the needs of our diverse community. Please note: Young readers and readers-to-be are who we wish to help the most! Some books aimed at adult readers may be suitable for high schoolers, but in general we seek donations that are age-appropriate.
WISH TO HELP? Have some time to spare? Looking for a way to bring your association, club, company, or even your family together to help improve literacy and share the joy of reading with our community? Read to Me! ABQ Network is often in need of volunteers to help organize and distribute books.
CAN YOU CONTRIBUTE FINANCIALLY? Financial donations help us get the specific books parents, guardians, educators, community leaders, and others want most to address unique needs for local kids. Every amount helps, at any time of the year!
