Blue recycling-sized collection bins (Like the one pictured) will be conveniently available at all Strack and VanTil Stores, as well as all Centier Bank locations in Lake and Porter counties for those wishing to donate. The group seeks new and used books of all types for all ages and grade levels.

The drive is coordinated by the Lakeshore Region Chapter of the IU Alumni Association, with assistance from members of the IU Northwest Alumni Board and IUN’s Student Alumni Association. All books collected are subsequently re-distributed to local school libraries, service organizations and family/domestic shelters through the Lakeshore Region Chapter’s affiliation with the national Discover Books organization.

Since their first community-service collection drive and thanks to book donor support, these IU groups have provided nearly 80,000 books to readers both young and old in Lake and Porter counties.
