Goodwill’s BookWorks preschool literacy program strives to instill a love of reading and helps provide children books.

Goodwill is holding a drive from Friday to March 15 to collect books for its BookWorks preschool literacy program.

They are looking for donations of new or like-new books for children ages 2 to 5. The BookWorks program helps provide books for children from low-income families. Goodwill volunteers read to groups of preschool children at Head Start centers and other locations.

Goodwill's BookWorks program is designed to instill a love of books and reading in preschoolers to prepare them to succeed in tomorrow's workforce. Because early childhood literacy is linked to later employability, BookWorks supports Goodwill Industries-Suncoast's mission of helping people achieve their full potential through the dignity and power of work.

To donate books, attach a note indicating that they are for BookWorks and drop them off at any Goodwill Industries-Suncoast store or donation site. For donation locations, visit goodwill-suncoast.org or call toll-free 1-888-279-1988.

To become a BookWorks volunteer, call Goodwill Community Relations toll-free at 1-888-279-1988, ext. 1013 or ext. 1976.
