Literary Resources

ReBooK (Recycling Books for Kids) promotes youth literacy and social and emotional development by recycling gently-used children’s books for distribution to literature-poor areas of the United States. Books are collected primarily from book drives hosted at schools. These donated books are then sorted and distributed to various underserved children who need literature enrichment.

This project is unique because through a community effort a variety of quality books are provided in good condition to underserved children for less than twelve cents per book.


ReBooK has
collected and distributed 39,884 books over the past eight years.

ReBooK was
created in 2000
and incorporated
as a non-profit organization in 2004.

ReBooK's largest book drive yielded 11,459 books and was hosted at West Woods Upper Elementary School
in Farmington, Connecticut during the 2002-2003
school year.
