IBP always needs quality books to send overseas. Holding a book drive is a great way to help. Below is an outline of what to consider when holding a book drive.
Hold your book drive at a place that gets lots of traffic. Universities, schools, and churches are great places to hold a book drive. Use large bins with legible signage. We have more information about marketing in our IBP Book Drive Packet. To access the files mentioned in the packet, please download these additional IBP Book Drive Resources.
Please visit the donate books page to view the types of books we most need.
The least expensive way to ship books to IBP is library rate, which you should be able to get by asking your post office. If you have more than 300 pounds of books you may want to consider shipping the books by freight.
IBP must find funds to ship the books you donate overseas. We ask that each book drive try to donate $1 per book to help pay for overseas shipping.
