Book Drive Kit

Book Drive Kit

Hosting a book drive for Read for Children and Next Door’s Books for Kids program can be a rewarding and fun way to give back to your community!

To make the process easier for you and answer questions you may have, we’ve compiled a digital book drive kit below with information/resources to support your book drive. The materials include a check-list of instructions, promotional posters and a list of our high-need books.

We also have book collection bins available – plus yard signs to promote your book drives. Please contact us to arrange a drop-off of book donations.

In addition, we encourage you to promote your book drive on social media and tag Next Door! Click for our social media accounts.

If you have any questions, call Books for Kids Program Manager Jackie Shanti at (414) 999-2509 or email her at
