The Book Exchange is a community service organization run entirely by volunteers who believe in the power of literacy to change lives.  We promote child literacy, encourage a love of reading, and work to ensure that all children have access to books.  Donations from our generous supporters fund classroom field trips from schools in Marin’s most under-resourced communities to our facility, where we help each child choose a bag of free books to take home.   We also provide books at little or no cost to teachers, families and to nonprofit organizations.  Your donations of books and money help us fulfill our mission. Visit us to donate or purchase gently used books during our open hours!

Thank you to our generous donors!
