Hooked on Books
Join schools throughout the metro for Reach Out & Read KC's 20th annual Hooked On Books book drive competition. The school that collects the most new and gently used books per student, wins bragging rights, a pizza party for one classroom, and a $500 gift certificate from Scholastic Books to use at your next book fair!
Most importantly, Hooked On Books provides a great opportunity for kids to help kids. All books collected are sorted and redistributed to organizations and schools who need your help.
PARTICIPATING IS AS EASY AS 1-2-3
Please note that HOB volunteers will only be available to pick up your books from February 5-March 16, 2018, so plan your drive accordingly.
2. Spread the word that you'll be collecting new and gently-used children's books appropriate for infants to 14-year-olds.
3. Count the books and report your results by March 16, 2018. After your drive, donated books will be picked up by a Reach Out and Read volunteer.
Reach Out and Read will deliver collection bins and posters before your drive begins.
