Making a Difference–Operation Teen Book Drive

on April 10, 2010

Operation Teen Book Drop will deliver 10,000 new books to teens on Native reservations and tribal lands, an event that coincides with Support Teen Literature Day.

In addition, more than 100 top young adult authors will leave their books in public places for young readers to discover, and members of the public can buy books online and have them shipped to tribal libraries.

The donations are especially significant to many Native teens. “In their lives, they really don’t have new books,” said Mary Nickless, the librarian at Ojo Encino Day School, one of 44 institutions that will benefit from Operation TBD.

GuysLitWire has created a wish list of 750 books that supporters can buy from Powells.com. Beginning April 7, these purchases can be made and sent directly to one of two tribal school libraries, Ojo Encino Day School or Alchesay High School.

    Operation Teen Book Drop is doing a wonderful thing! I love books and can’t imagine living without them. I also have a book blog: http://teen-book-review.blogspot.com.au/.

  2. Thanks for stopping by! I’d be happy to send you a print copy of my upper middle grade book, STAINED GLASS SUMMER or my young adult, WEAVING MAGIC for review on your blog! Just let me know!
