Book’em is always accepting new books for children and teens – especially pre-K through 4th grade. If you would like to help out, please consider bringing a book to our next chapter meeting. Member Mary McCarthy, a Book’em Board member, will pass them on to Book’em for distribution. Please consider the following guidelines when donating:
- Avoid “consumables” (coloring or sticker books), and holiday-themed books. These books go to the Nashville Public Schools, which have a very diverse population.
- Popular bestseller titles are great (Seuss, Wimpy Kid, Berenstain Bears) – the kids know and love them!
- Paperback, board books, and hardcover are all welcome.
