​​​​​​Due to Covid-19 our workshop is open by appointment only. On Thursday afternoons and Fridays only we are accepting lobby donations of  children's and young adult books in good condition.  We have resumed shipping books and are facing increased international mailing costs due to the pandemic. Please support us with a financial contribution so we can continue providing targeted reading material to those in need.

Darien Book Aid Plan


In existence since 1949, Darien Book Aid is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that improves literacy and education worldwide and builds a foundation of peace, understanding and friendship through the free distribution of books. Darien Book Aid sends hand-selected books in response to specific requests from Peace Corps Volunteers, libraries and schools all over the world. We also donate books domestically to US organizations in need including schools, libraries, prisons, hospitals and Native American groups.
