Dream Big Book Drive

Don’t miss our Dream Big Book Drive on MLK Day!

Inspired by Dr. King’s vision of a world in which every child has the chance to realize his or her full potential, Book Harvest marks MLK Day with the Dream Big Book Drive on MLK Day, an annual community-wide celebration of diversity, literacy, and book ownership for all children.


What: Book Harvest’s Dream Big Book Drive on MLK Day, a celebration of diversity, literacy, and books for all kids.

When: Monday, January 15, 2018, 1-4 p.m.

Where: Durham Central Park, 501 Foster Street, Durham.

Who: Everyone! Round up your new and gently used children’s books – and those of your neighbors, friends, classmates, and coworkers – and bring them to us the afternoon of MLK Day or anytime during the month of January. Working together, we can ensure that all our children have books!
