Albertsons Library Collecting Books for Operation Wish Book

Operation Wish Book is a non-profit organization started over 20 years ago by retired teachers who wanted to place new books in the hands of children who do not own books. The books are collected in the month of November and distributed to children in December through the Salvation Army. Albertsons Library started collecting new books for this wonderful organization in 1994.

We have collected 3032 new books to help spread literacy throughout the Boise Valley. This year we would like to ask the Campus community to partner with Albertsons Library to collect even more new books placed in children’s hands. The Boise State Book Store is partnering with us by providing discounted books to purchase. We will be collecting new books from November 1 to December 3, 2021.

You can drop the books off at the Circulation Desk or contact Pam Kindelberger (426-3827), Nancy Donahoo (426-4038) or email Operation Wish Book.
