Book Drive for Mrs. Ziegler's Classroom
Help us support a local teacher and her students!
We're holding a book drive to help fill up Mrs. Ziegler's middle school classroom with incredible books. If you support her class by buying books off of her wish list, we'll cover 20% of the purchase price, and then collect and ship all the books to her classroom for free!

From Mrs. Ziegler:
"I teach middle school-aged students at a small, charter school in Northern Michigan. Our school sits on 250 beautiful acres of land, which includes three ponds and numerous hiking trails. Our school community values the outdoors, and tries to incorporate our campus into our rigorous academics as much as possible. When I started teaching English Language Arts at this school three years ago, the 6th through 8th graders showcased a love of reading, but the classroom lacked a library. It’s been a goal of mine to build a classroom library full of age-appropriate, high-interest books of all genres. One of my favorite parts of teaching is matching my students with a book I know they are going to love. We talk about books all the time. My classroom budget is limited, but my desire to grow life-long readers is not. Having support in building our library will allow more books in the hands of readers, and that means more opportunities to position ourselves next to our beautiful pond, soaking up the sun and a great story."

Books have the power to shape lives, open doors, and make us feel seen. But not everyone has the same access to literature. This is the first in a series of book drives we're holding to make great books more accessible. If you know of a school, retirement home, hospitality house, youth program, or other organization that could benefit from a book drive, reach out! We'd love to hear from you.
Thanks for helping us change the world—one book at a time!
