Book Harvest

Are the books that your children have outgrown taking up valuable shelf space? Are you looking for a way to pass them along to local kids in need? BCS is joining other schools and organizations to support the Childrens’ Book Bank 9th Annual Book Harvest. Once books are gathered, the Book Bank will clean, refurbish and bundle books by age group and distribute them across Portland.

How You Can Help

Gather new or gently used picture books, board books, graphic novels and early reader chapter books. Simply donate your new and gently-used children's books in the collection bins set out at the front entrance of both Fernwood and Hollyrood every Monday in November! Book Harvest always needs more board books, graphic novels and children's books written by diverse authors and/or featuring diverse characters. While they wish they could take everything, Book Harvest is unable to accept adult books, religious books, textbooks, encyclopedias, magazines, activity/coloring books, or books with significant damage.  

For questions or if you have donations but can not make the collection dates email Christy Robertson or Jane Comeault.
