Book Drive at UA BookStores
As we enter the month of giving, share the joy of reading!
The annual UA BookStores Book Drive will be held at UA BookStores and A-Stores locations – visit the link below for all locations.
Donate new or gently used children's books and support Make Way for Books in providing children throughout Tucson and Southern Arizona with access to books and a lifetime love for learning.
Make Way for Books is an early literacy nonprofit that provides proven programs, services, and resources to 30,000 young children, parents, and educators throughout southern Arizona each year. Their mission is to give all children the chance to read and succeed. They provide proven programs to ensure our youngest children discover the joy of books, develop critical emergent literacy and language skills, and start school ready. They reach young children in the critical birth to 5 years to build a foundation for all future learning. Their theory of change is that they get to every caregiver in a child's life and ensure that, that adult understands their incredible power to impact their child's literacy, love of learning, and success.
Across all Make Way for Books programs:
- 97 percent of children develop critical emergent literacy and language skills that are the building blocks for future successful readers
- 98 percent of parents/caregivers gain skills and confidence to be their child’s first, most essential teacher
- 99 percent of early childhood educators gain skills to support the children in their care more effectively
The Book Drive will run until the end of semester, therefore, be sure to encourage your friends and families to donate books.
