We are 11 year-old twins, Hannah and Alexander, who were inspired to start Adopt a Book in November 2011 after we heard about kids in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area who didn’t own books. To date, we have donated over 58,000 books to over 56 organizations, schools and program serving children in need!
We love books and love to read a lot! Many of the kids that receive our books have never been to a library, don’t have access to a library or have ever owned a book of their own.
We collect new and gently used children’s books and then deliver them to kids in need of books. Visit our list of Recipients that receive our books.
If you are interested in arranging a book drive or donating to us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also drop off your book donations to any local Mattress Firm store in Cincinnati, Dayton and Northern Kentucky as well as to the Duke Energy Children’s Museum.
