Bookmarks wish lists are the perfect way to create online registries for weddings, baby showers, birthdays, and holidays. Community groups can also create wish lists to request books from community supporters.

You must create an account on our website to save books to your wish list. Once you have a Bookmarks account, an "Add to Wish List" button becomes visible alongside the "Add to Cart" button on product pages and book lists on our website. When you are logged into your online account, you can use this new button to add any book to your wish list.

SENIOR CARE WISH LISTS
The older segments of our population have been hit hard by COVID-19 and have been quarantined more stringently than others. In an effort to show our care, we want to provide new books, specifically in large print formats. During this time of isolation, books can help you stay connected to the wider world and be a solace in times of anxiety. Please consider joining us in this effort in reaching out to those in our community who are unable to leave quarantine at this time. View the wish list here.
FEED & READ WISH LISTS
Join the Hispanic League for their FEED AND READ/COMER Y LEER. This is a free, CDC-compliant, and no-contact solution to help those most in need and affected by COVID-19 in the central/south side community. It will contain non-perishable food items, books for all ages (Spanish & English), and personal care items, accessible to everyone, no questions asked. It will also raise local awareness of food insecurity while creating a space for neighbors to help meet neighbor’s food needs. FEED AND READ/COMER Y LEER is a way to help anyone affected by the stresses of this pandemic, especially those with limited resources and those considered high-risk or who fear contact. It will also help this community area designated as a “food desert”, where residents are far from any supermarkets and who have limited access to nutritious food. There will be safe and non-perishable items available, with the addition of books to promote literacy and other essentials/personal items. The pantry will also have free masks from time to time as supplies are available. A bilingual list of instructions will be posted for anyone using the pantry. Regular monitoring and cleaning of the pantry will be done by Gardea and Food Forest volunteers. A hand cleansing station will also be installed.
