HPB Donations

Our founder Ken Gjemre once said, “Books should fill our lives, not our land.” Donating books has always been an important part of our legacy and we continue to advocate for literacy in underserved areas of the community by providing books to those in need.

We’ve donated millions of books over the years, including more than 11.1 million books since 2012.

Check back here throughout the year to learn more about the organizations that receive our book donations.
