SAReads® Book Bank

The SAReads® Book Bank is working to eradicate book deserts in San Antonio and supplement classroom libraries by giving free books to students, teachers, schools and nonprofits. The book bank is a clearinghouse for collecting, cleaning, sorting and redistributing books to the community located inside the Gulfdale branch of Firstmark Credit Union. Since the book bank began in 2010, SAReads® has donated over 350,000 books to teachers for their classroom libraries, children for their home libraries and organizations for the children they serve. 

Requesting & Selecting Books 

SAReads® continually restocks our bookshelves with donated books to fulfill community requests. The SAReads® Book Bank serves teachers, nonprofits and schools that are located in Bexar County and need books for classroom libraries.
