Request a Donation from Bookmarks

Thank you for reaching out to Bookmarks to support your community event! Bookmarks is committed to donations that align with our mission of cultivating community and increasing access to books. Please see the donation options below. If you have any questions, please reach out to Lera Shawver at lera@bookmarksnc.org.

 

Gift Cards and Book Bundles

If you are an organization in the community looking for book or gift card donations for an upcoming fundraiser, please email lera@bookmarksnc.org. You will be contacted by Lera Shawver, Administrator for Bookmarks. If you are a school representative or PTA member interested in the outreach resources we provide schools, please see the section for school donation requests. 

Please note: All donation requests are reviewed on a periodic basis. Please do not contact Bookmarks until we get in touch to let you know if we can or cannot fulfill your request. Bookmarks has budgeted funds for community outreach each quarter; once the funds have been allocated, we will be unable to fulfill any more requests.

If we are able to fulfill your request, you must pick up your donated items from Bookmarks. We will hold the items for one week after notifying you that they are available and ready to be picked up.


Little Free Libraries

If you are a Little Free Library and want to receive books, please contact Sarah Blanton, Volunteer Coordinator, at sarah@bookmarksnc.org to be added to our donation list. 

Donation Requests for Schools

If you are a teacher or school representative and are interested in book donations, Support Literacy Days, or our Author in Schools Program, please fill out this form. You will be contacted by Lupe Penn, Bookmarks Youth and Schools Manager. 

Please note: The form is sent out to schools in advance of our program year, which begins January 1st and ends November 30th. Please complete the form as early as possible to ensure your school receives support from Bookmarks’ outreach programs.
