More Books For More Kids
The Big Red Bookshelf project places bright red bookshelves stocked with gently-used or new books appropriate for children from birth - 3rd grade in the community where families with young children visit. These books have been donated by community members. Children are invited to take a book home to keep and share! View the current Big Red Bookshelf locations and waiting list here.
Bring your gently-used or new children’s books—appropriate for children ages birth to 3rd grade—to our office. Books can be delivered Monday - Friday 8:30-4:30 PM at United Way 218 W. Main St. Ravenna, OH.
Host a Book Drive!
Coordinate your efforts with your co-workers, family, neighbors or community groups and conduct a book drive. Donated books will be used to create new bookshelves and to re-stock existing locations.
