Remain in Touch Book Drive a Great Success!

One of our favorite parts of last weekend's Tenth Anniversary Celebration was the book drive for Remain in Touch, a local non-profit literacy organization that we've supported since its founding in 2016. Inside Brilliant Books, a display table is filled with children's books, all requested titles for the Remain in Touch book drive.  It is topped with a sign reading "Join our Book Drive to Support Remain in Touch."

We received dozens of donations, many for multiple books, including one donation that totaled over $100 worth of books!  We love being part of a community that values organizations like Remain in Touch, and we're so pleased to be able to do our part.

The first batch of books was collected by Remain in Touch this week, but we've decided to keep the in-store portion of the drive going a bit longer.  Check out the donation table in-store and pick out a book (or two) to help keep children connected with parents facing incarceration.

Even if you can't join us in-store, you can always donate a book online—that part of the drive runs indefinitely!  Just as with our in-store drive, we cover 20% of the cost of all the books ordered and donated online, and we handle getting the books to Remain in Touch.  Just visit our information page to learn more and get started with donating!

Remain in Touch is a non-profit literacy program offered at local jails that allows incarcerated parents to connect with their children through literature.  Learn more about Remain in Touch


In addition to this book drive, we're always looking for new opportunities to support the individuals and communities around us.  If you know of an organization (school, library, retirement community, etc.) that is in need of book donations, let us know!  We'd love to help you set up a book drive.  Just send us an email at
