Thank you for being generous in helping put more books into the hands of more kids!

We have two ways you can spread the joy and love of reading:

The Red Balloon Book Drive - Donate books and toys to families in need!

We are now collecting holiday donations for the Red Balloon Book Drive!  This holiday season we are partnering with Twin Cities Geek to provide books and toys to families in need. Through December 9, gifts will go to  Hallie Q. Brown Community Center in St. Paul, MN and the Women’s Prison Book Project in Minneapolis, MN. From December 10 - 31, gifts will go to Neighborhood House.

To donate books online to the Red Balloon Book Drive, add any book(s) to your cart and use coupon code BOOKDRIVE to receive a 20% discount.  Select "pick-up at store" for your shipping option and we'll automatically add those books to our book drive.

The Red Ballon Connects Fund

This Fund was established in fall of 2022 by generous gifts from the Red Balloon Bookshop community as a way to promote equity in education.  The mission of the fund is to improve kids’ access to books and the people who create them, no matter the income level of the family.  You can learn more about the fund and make a donation HERE
