Got Books?

  • Our district's Book Cafe hits the road delivering books to kids throughout our district. The Book Cafe is in need of good to gently used preschool/children/teen books. All of the school libraries in the Snohomish School District are happy to accept book donations during the school year and will send them to the Book Cafe. Donations can also be dropped at the district office (1601 Avenue D in Snohomish). Chapter books, story books, board books and kids magazines are always needed. If you have new to gently used soccer equipment, jump ropes and sidewalk chalk, kids who visit the Book Cafe are also in great appreciation of these items as well.
