We’re happy to take any and all donations! Following are the most in-demand genres.
Not sure if your books fit these categories? Send us a message.
Our mission is to take books where libraries don’t go and give them away because literacy liberates and connects people.
We view this work as a true partnership with the community.
Our four weekly Popup Library events provide Camden residents with badly needed access to books. The network of Camden Book Arks is stewarded by local individuals and groups.
How You Can Help:
We rely on the generosity of community-minded individuals and businesses for support. Make a tax-deductible contribution or donate your unused books and other supplies.
Individuals and groups volunteer as Pop Up Librarians or Book Ark Managers. Be a beacon of literacy in your community. We supply the book inventory, suggest locations, and equip you with some handy tips.
Equally as important as our donations and volunteers, you can show your support by signing up for our e-communications, following our socials, and simply spreading the word.
We distribute books of all genres and for all ages, and our entirely-donated inventory comprises new and gently used books.
Pop Up Libraries (PULs)
Essentially regularly-scheduled, mobile book giveaway stations, PULs are set up and manned by organization members and community volunteers.
View our PUL schedule.
We recruit builders and Book Ark Managers to design and maintain these permanent structures we call Book Arks to house free books throughout our communities.

Partnering with other local nonprofit organizations, schools, shelters, clinics, transportation centers, galleries, and soup kitchens, we bring books to events and during service times.

help us ACHIEVE OUR MISSION
“As we continue our work and strive to expand our efforts, every donation makes a difference, regardless of its size. Your generosity allows us to spread literacy and introduce our programs (i.e., our PULs, Book Arks, and partnership opportunities) to more cities, more states—more readers.”
– Tom Martin, Executive Director
