Get Involved


Over 1,037,151 books have been distributed to kids throughout the Lehigh Valley.


To spread the joy of learning and reading, new or gently used books may be donated to Cops ‘n’ Kids. In many cases, these books are the first that the children have to keep as their own.

Donate Books

  • Check your bookshelves for children’s books you might like to donate.
  • Pick up a few books that you know a child might like from flea markets or yard sales.
  • Purchase an extra book or two for a child as you shop.
  • Organize a book drive. A book drive is a great way to collect books for Cops ‘n’ Kids.
