The Children and Family commissions in Marion, Polk, and Yamhill counties are seeking donations of new or gently used children’s books to distribute to children, youth, and families in need.

Book collection sites will be available December 1-12.  Follow the county links below to find collection locations in your area

 In the meanwhile, gather up the family and sort through your own children’s books or stop by a local bookstore and pick out something special to donate.

Books needed:

-NEW early childhood picture books
-Story books for infants/toddlers
-Primary easy-reader books (grades K-3)
-Books for children and youth grades 4-12
-Books in English, Spanish, Russian, and bilingual
-GENTLY used books of good quality (intact spines, no marks on pages, clean)

If you don't have a book to donate, financial contributions can also be made on this website through the secure use of PayPal. Dollars will be spent to purchase the type of books that are so needed in our community.   

Collection barrels will be placed throughout Marion, Polk and Yamhill counties.  Please use the county links below to find out where books can be donated in each county.
