For the Love of Books is a "recycle books" public awareness initiative to collect and donate books by partnering with communities to share the responsibility of reducing, reusing and recycling books and to be kind to the planet.


Storytime Crafts partners with local communities, schools, day care programs, Girl Scout Troops, and non-profits including Savers Thrift Stores, to collect gently-used children’s books to support our "Kindness Project”. This initiative combined with the “Read to Succeed” program provides FREE books for children.
