Vancouver + New York: A Good Book Drive

agoodbookdrive

Heads up to everyone living in Vancouver and New York, the annual event known as A Good Book Drive is currently running until the end of the month in both cities. The project is a simple way to encourage a new generation of readers and to get good books into the hands of kids who need new ones.

All you have to do is buy a copy of your favourite kid’s book and drop it off at one of the drop-off sites. At each site they will give you a giant sticker to put inside the front cover, to be used to write a special note to the kid that will receive your book.

If you follow them on Instagram you’ll be able to see what book I donated when it gets shared there (should be soon).

See a full list of Vancouver and New York drop-off locations below!
