Children's Book Drive

Alexandria Bookshelf (ABS) needs your gently used books!Every holiday season, Alexandria Bookshelf, one of the many community outreach projects of the DreamDog Foundation, gives out thousands of books to children in Alexandria. You may have seen these books in your own homes – they have a sticker on them advertising our program. Now in our 3rd year, ABS has more than 200,000 books out in Alexandria on more 35 bookshelves around the community, in schools, recreation centers and in the city’s housing authorities.
This holiday season, we’re asking for your help in filling Alexandria homes with fantastic children’s books, often for kids who don’t own books of their own. ABS is getting books in the "Hands, Homes and Hearts of ALL Children! Thank you for helping make that possible!
Please clean out your children’s bookshelves and donate gently used books at one of the following locations:
Hooray for Books at 1555 King Street in Old Town.Mt. Vernon Rec Center in Del Ray at 2701 Commonwealth Ave.UpCycle at in Del Ray at 1712 Mt. Vernon Avenue (2nd floor)CrossFit by the water in Old Town at 805 North Royal Street.31 E. Masonic View Ave.Or 23 W. Myrtle St.
This is a win-win – you get to make space in your homes just in time for the holidays. And our city’s kids get to experience the joy that comes with a really good read.Questions? Want to volunteer this holiday season? Email
