Thank you KIII-TV for sponsoring our annual book drives since 2008! They have helped us spread the word in a way we could not have done without their support. Thousands of people have learned about our program through the EBR Book Drive and many have generously recycled their children's books by bringing them to the studio during each year.

If your neighborhood, church, business, or organization wants to start collecting books now to turn in the day of the book drive, let us know and we will schedule a time for you to get on TV when you bring your books in! Our contact information is to the left.

We are asking for donation of gently used baby or children's books for use in the Early Bird Reader Program. We're looking for books for ages 0-5, which means lots of colorful illustrations with 50 words or less.

So stay tuned to KIII-TV Corpus Christi, TX (ABC) news stories about the next book drive throughout the month of March.

Or you can drop off books anytime at our permanent bookery locations.
