Norte Book Drive

Norte is a youth-focused, active transportation-centered 501(c)(3) non-profit program in Northern Michigan.  Through education, activation, and other initiatives, Norte strives to build strong communities and happy, healthy people.  They work to create walk- and bike-friendly neighborhoods and empower the young—and the young at heart.  Norte's projects include:

  • Creating safe bike & walk routes to school
  • Building confidence in youth through outdoor adventures
  • Organizing winter outdoor activities
  • Promoting active lifestyles for individuals of all ages & abilities
  • And...assembling community libraries that share stories of resilience & community!

That final bullet point, of course, is the inspiration for this book drive.  We want to help Norte build libraries that educational, inspirational, and accessible for readers & riders of all ages!

Here's how the book drive works:

YOU purchase any book (or books) of your choice from the book list—or from the book drive table in-store.
WE cover 20% of the cost—and take care of shipping and delivery.
