Boise State Students Collect Books For Low-Income Families

Boise State University

Books in Every Home is one of Boise State University’s Vertically Integrated Projects. These projects allow students to get experience while earning college credit. The goal of this project is to bring books to low-income and refugee elementary students in the community.



According to a news release, Books in Every Home is collecting new and used books to promote the project. They put out donation bins on campus over the weekend and plan to continue collecting books until Friday, April 12.


The bins are located in the Albertsons Library and the Student Union Building. Books can also be donated online through an Amazon wishlist.


According to the project’s webpage, students involved in this project raise funds to buy books they hand-select. They also work with teachers to plan activities and meet with children to read to them when the books are delivered.


The books will be sent to children in the Treasure Valley who need them. A delivery will also be made to Book It Forward Idaho, an initiative that makes books more accessible to children in need.
