Book Donation Guidelines

Welcome to Books for Me! Literacy Foundation

Books for Me! is a non-profit Society and a registered charity based in Vancouver. For many families, buying children's books just isn't possible. Books for Me! provides children from these families an opportunity to build their own libraries for free. Our program comes to life as children choose their own book to take home and keep.

Books for Me! collects books from schools, families, community and business organizations and distributes these books to children who need them.

Our inventory is full and we are generally not accepting book donations at this time. However, we are always looking for good quality non-fiction children's books and early learning books for preschool age children.  Please email booksformevancouver@gmail.com if you have books to donate.

We are also looking for volunteers to help run programs in elementary schools in Vancouver. If you love working with children and you love books, please contact us for more information.

Books for Me! is grateful for your financial support. Donations can be made on-line, securely and easily, through Canada Helps:
