How Your Books Can Help

Recent studies show that in middle class neighborhoods there are 13 books per child, while in low-income neighborhoods there is only one book for every 300 children.

Your donation of new or gently-used* books will make a difference in the lives of children who struggle with literacy throughout the inner-city Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Please consider a company book drive, neighborhood book drive, or group activity to sponsor a book drive. Download the Book Drive toolkit and learn how to host a book drive for LDA Minnesota.
