Join us for the 10th Annual Dream Big Book Drive!

*The event has already taken place on this date: Mon, 01/18/2021
Every year on MLK Day, we celebrate the power of community and our big dream of books and literacy for all kids with our biggest event of the year: Dream Big! The celebration is part book drive, part volunteer event, part community partner fair, part festival, and all party and fun! We can’t wait to dream big with all of you again on Monday, January 18, 2021 as we kick off a year-long celebration of our tenth anniversary, so make plans to join us for a safe and one-of-a-kind party you don’t want to miss!

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

Dream Big Drive-Through: During our newly designed, contactless celebration of kids and books, community members are invited to drop off donations of new and gently used children’s books. Popular children’s book characters will be on hand to cheer on attendees. All donated books will be provided to children in Durham and beyond through Book Harvest’s many programs. All attendees will also receive free, new string backpacks full of children’s books to take home and keep forever.

Dream Big Video Premiere: At noon on MLK Day, tune into Book Harvest’s website or Facebook page for the “Dream Big 2021 News Special,” a 25-minute, heartwarming program starring local children as newscasters who report on their love of books and interview Book Harvest’s many supporters and fans. Here’s a special sneak peek!
