New Haven Reads is only accepting donations by appointment. If you would like to schedule an appointment to donate new or gently-used books, give us a call or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We also recruit individuals and organizations to run children’s book drives for the Book Bank. For more information, please see our Book Donations Guidelines below.
***We appreciate all donations; however, we cannot accept any donations left outside the building. Any books left outside are subject to be damaged. Unfortunately, if books are damaged, we are unable to find them a new home.***
