Donate Books

books collectionOur browsable collection must engage urban people of all ages and turn kids on to reading. These categories work best in public space: children’s picture books; poetry, short stories, essays; art and photography; interesting reference. We love bilingual and international titles. Learn more about our collection. Visit our wish list at Strand Bookstore or donate gently used books (Book Donation Policy). Contact Leslie Davol.


Uni StaffHelp us put the act of learning “on stage” in the city’s public spaces. We’re looking for dynamic people who want to be around books, art, and other educational materials, spend time outside, and connect with people from all walks of life in New York’s neighborhoods. We need help greeting the public, re-shelving books, reading aloud to kids, supervising our DRAW cart. Help us create a safe, welcoming environment for everyone. Language skills helpful. People skills essential. To get started, contact Leslie Davol.
