Donate a children’s book today! (Half Pint Library kicks off)

Have you heard that Half Price Books has committed to donating one million books to the community in 2012? One of the major ways we give the gift of reading each and every year is through our Half Pint Library Book Drive, and it’s that time again! 

The Half Price Books’ 2012 Half Pint Library Book Drive runs February 20-March 31, 2012. Drop off your new or gently used children’s books at any Half Price Books location. For every book donated, HPB will match it. Donations will benefit local nonprofit organizations in your community. For more information about how the book drive works, make sure to check out our FAQs.

2012 marks the 13th year of Half Pint Library program. With your help, we have provided more than two and a half million books and created hundreds of Half Pint Libraries across the nation. In 2011 alone, 313,840 books were donated to hundreds of nonprofit groups and schools in 16 states. Thank you for helping to share the love of reading with deserving children and their families. 

Hey, Teachers and Librarians! Interested in hosting your own Half Pint Library Drive at your school? Your school could win a $200 HPB Gift Card!

Enroll your school to host a Half Pint Library Book Drive March 19-23 for a chance to win an HPB Gift Card for your school or library. Registration is open now and closes March 9th.

Ready, set, go!
