Volunteer for the Give-A-Kid-A-Book Campaign

Give-A-Kid-A-Book is an annual campaign to collect new books and distribute them to low-income children in December.

The campaign is coordinated by the Friends of the Brown County Library, and distribution is handled in partnership with the Salvation Army and the Marine’s Toys for Tots Christmas programs.

Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Book Collection -  A major source of new GAKAB books comes from volunteers who host and promote a book collection box in their business, church, or club.

  • Setup - Help transport boxes of books from the library staging area to the delivery truck,  then from the truck to the display floor, where the boxes are then unpacked and the books arranged on the display tables.

  • Distribution Advisers - On distribution days (usually a week before Christmas), volunteers help parents locate the best books that would be age-appropriate and of a particular interest for their children.  The most helpful advisers are often parents who are already familiar with current children and young adult titles and authors.   

For more information or to sign on as a volunteer, feel free to email our volunteer coordinator at volunteer@browncountylibraryfriends.com, and indicate "GAKAB" in the email’s subject line.
