Volunteers Wanted for SAReads Holiday Book Drive

The SAReads Book Bank has donated over 300,000 books to children, teachers and nonprofits across Bexar County. The Book Bank relies on community donations to acquire gently used books, as well as volunteers to help collect new books during the SAReads Holiday Book Drive.

You can help by volunteering for a 2-hour shift at one of five local Barnes & Noble locations in San Antonio on the following days and times:

  • Friday 12/1, from 7-9 pm
  • Saturday, 12/2 and Sunday 12/3 from 11 am-1 pm, 1-3 pm, 3-5 pm
  • Saturday, 12/9 and Sunday 12/10 from 11 am-1 pm, 1-3 pm, 3-5 pm
  • Saturday, 12/16 and Sunday 12/17 from 11 am-1 pm, 1-3 pm, 3-5 pm

Volunteers greet customers and ask them to support the book drive by purchasing and donating a new children's book at the cashier. It's easy, it's fun, and all volunteers receive a free SAReads t-shirt! 

SAReads is looking for two to three volunteers for each shift. The book drive is an opportunity for friends, co-workers, companies, organizations or teens and their parents to spend time together giving back to the community. In addition, volunteer groups, companies and organizations can choose to "adopt" a store on a particular day. Please contact SAReads for more details. All volunteers are welcome, however anyone under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or an adult.
