Berks Book Boxes

White, plastic newspaper box sitting outside a brick building with books insideAs you travel around Berks County, you may stumble upon white newspaper boxes with labels that read Berks Book Boxes. Inside you'll find an assortment of books from different genres and topics, all ready to read for the next person looking for a good book.

Berks Book Boxes is designed to provide an easily accessible book stop at convenient, public locations for those passing by. Similar to a Free Little Library, the books inside each box are available for anyone to select and take home for free with no obligation to add or return a book—just immerse yourself in the joy of reading! Of course, anyone interested in donating a gently used book to the collection may place their book inside the box for future readers to enjoy.

Please note: Berks Book Boxes are not library book drops and will not be monitored. Make sure to return any library books to a Berks County Public Libraries location near you.
