Donate Books

Your Children’s Bookshelf is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing free children’s books through our Donors and Program Partners to families and children, encouraging the love of reading, fostering literacy and education.

Your Children’s Bookshelf is a 501(c)(3) organization so all donations are tax deductible.

So how can you help??? There are many ways to assist us in our goal of acquiring books. First check your basement or closet, call a family member or a friend. You’ll be surprised with the hidden gems you will find. Visit a garage or rummage sale, everyone will have that area where they are selling or giving away children’s books.

As you can imagine, books for Your Children’s Bookshelf are everything. Our library in McHenry, IL houses our gently used books, and the inventory fluctuates through-out the year. We have always tried to maintain at least 5,000 books in our library.

To donate books, please contact Jim Boston at (630) 280-0127 or at

We will be happy to come pick them up or we can schedule a date/time for you to drop them off.

If you would like to help through holding a book-drive, we work in conjunction with corporations or individuals to set up and organize the drive. Your employees or friends have the opportunity to donate books to this drive or make a monetary donation.
