Books for Keeps is Coming to Elbert County Schools

The Elbert County School District is pleased to partner with Books for Keeps to provide our K-4bfk students open, equal access to books for reading, discovery, and laying the foundation for a successful life. Books for Keeps is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Athens. This coming May, through the work of this organization, our students will get to select 12 books to keep as their own.  


Books for Keeps will be at Elbert County Elementary School from May 1-3, and at Elbert County Primary School from May 7-8. The organization is seeking volunteers to assist with the distribution of books to students. There will be two volunteer shifts organized for each of these days. If you might be available for one or more shifts, please email Leslie Hale at: leslie@booksforkeeps.org.


Here are some other ways you can support this worthwhile program:


  • Donate. A donation of just $30 sponsors a student in our program.
  • Host a book drive. B collecting gently used books, you're helping gather books needed for the program.
  • Organize a spirit night - at a local restaurant or other business to benefit Books for Keeps.
