How Can I Help?


Are you decluttering the house? Are your shelves overflowing? Do you have stacks of books that your children have outgrown? Donate all those pre-loved books to Land of Lincoln Bookshare. We promise to find good homes for them!

We have partnered with local businesses as collection sites. Please visit them during regular business hours to drop off your donations.

If you have a bulk donation or any questions about donating please leave us a comment or email us at


Land Of Lincoln Bookshare is looking for Central Illinois businesses to become collection centers. Would you like to support literacy in our community? Does your business have an empty corner we can fill? LOL Bookshare will provide you with a collection kit containing everything you need. Is there an upcoming event that would be perfect for a Take a Book/Leave a Book table?  Contact us to make arrangements. As a thank you we will feature your business on our website and social media.


We are looking for locations to share our donated inventory. Do you know a local business or social center with a little space to spare for free books? Is there a retirement home or nursing facility that would like a small onsite library for its residents? Is your local school or after school program looking for fresh reading material for its students? Please email us or leave a comment, we would be happy to help.

  1. I have a large copy paper box full. Can I drop that at one of the merchants or do I need to make special arrangements ?

    • Hi Mitsy, Any one of our collection sites should be able to accept your box, just pick the closest one to you. Thank you so much for thinking of us!
