Another year of our Half Pint Library Book Drive and book giveaways has come and gone! This was the 19th year of our Half Pint Library Book Drive (part of our Million Book Donation Project), and I am pleased to announce we distributed 330,789 books to organizations across the country.
Thank you to all of our wonderful customers who donated books to the drive. We couldn’t have gotten so many books into the hands of kids who need them without you! Until next year, please enjoy these photos from some of our giveaways.
The book recipients and HPB staff pose for a photo before the book distribution begins at our Downers Grove, Illinois location.

Look at all those books!
Speaking of lots of books, we gave away 33,000 at our Dallas Flagship store.
It was an action-packed day for the Flagship and corporate crew!
The Cedar Rapids non-profits and schools waited in the music section for their books. (Hopefully they found a new record or two while they were there!)
The staff at our Mason, Ohio store created some lovely BW chalk art for their guests!

Finally, it wouldn’t be a book giveaway without our friend BW, the Half Price Books Bookworm, who stopped by to visit the San Antonio giveaway.
