FAQs

How can I start a book drive?

Here is one way: contact your child’s teacher, and ask if they can help by having each child donate a new or gently-used book to Read To Know. You can call us with the results, or give the teacher the Read To Know phone number, 201-445-3176, to have us do the follow-up and pick up the books.
