We’re thrilled to announce that we moved our Book Bank to 2166 Palou Avenue in San Francisco! Conveniently located off Bayshore Boulevard and Highways 101 and 280 in the Bayview, we’ll have room to grow in the years ahead. Now we’re rolling up our sleeves to recreate the safe, warm, and welcoming Book Bank our clients, donors, and volunteers rely on—while always keeping COVID safety in mind.

As we continue to offer curbside service by appointment, we’re restocking our shelves with beautiful books from authors, publishers, and individual book donors and drives. We’re preparing an online appointment reservation system, and setting up for safe distancing while volunteering, browsing, and donating. We can’t wait to welcome you back in person as soon as possible!

Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve been working harder than ever to give free books to the most vulnerable children throughout Northern California. We’re grateful to all our generous and undaunted supporters who’ve helped us deliver over 34,000 diverse books to children who need them now more than ever—you are our heroes!

And now we need your help to cover new overhead costs for rent and utilities, so together we can continue to serve children who need books the most. Please share our Donate link with your friends, family, and community of readers today. Stay healthy, and keep reading!

Take a virtual walkthrough of our new Book Bank at 2166 Palou, and stay tuned for our next chapter!
