Request Books

Does your organization or school serve children whose families cannot afford books? You can request books by completing the form below. Applications are fulfilled on a rolling basis pending approval and book supply. In order to provide books across the region, please limit requests to one per group per year. Please note that the book bank depends on donations in order to fill requests.

Attention: Books must be picked up from the Book Bank within two months of the approved request. If you are planning to pick up your books at a scheduled field trip, please do not submit the request more than two months in advance.

To date, the book bank has donated over 300,000 books to children in need!

Please consider a donation to the Book Bank to improve the literacy rate in Central Virginia and give under-resourced children the joy of book ownership.
