The fifth annual Children’s Book Drive is a collaborative effort between United Way of Rhode Island and Books Are Wings to engage local businesses, community organizations, individuals and families to help foster a love of reading while encouraging children to build their own libraries at home. This year’s book collection will start on May 1 and end on June 10, just in time for summer learning.



We’re collecting all new and gently used books for children of all ages (birth–teen), fiction and nonfiction, in all subject areas are welcome. Books about science, technology, engineering and math, for grades 5 through 9, will support learning programs with a STEM focus.
