This particular post are for those teachers in the Triangle area of North Carolina.
Book Harvest is an awesome organization that seeks to give books to middle school and high school students. This is NOT a classroom library thing, this is a give the book to the kid to take home and keep forever thing. Each year they give away books in August, December, and May. If you teach students in low income areas, you are invited to come and pack up boxes of books (the first time I went I lefts with one box full of books and they were trying to get me to take more).
These are not used books. These are not books from no name authors. Last time I was there I came away with a load of brand new Rick Riordan books. There are some classics, some picture focused books, and plenty of YA books.
Want in on this? Their web site is http://bookharvestnc.org/programs/books-to-go/ and on this site you'll find the email address for Daniele Berman, the Community Partnership Manager and she can get you on the email list to alert you of the next book harvest.
