20,000 Book Drive

In 2015, to celebrate it’s 20th Anniversary, the Junior League of Kane & DuPage Counties led an initiative to collect 20,000 children’s books for our 20,000 Book Drive in our communities. By the end of JLKD’s 20th League Year, we had exceeded our goal and collected 20,158 books to donate to local at-risk children! The collected books were donated to organizations within the community including:



  • Anderson School, St. Charles
  • Aurora Public Library
  • Aurora Public Library Bookmobile
  • Big Brothers, Big Sisters of South Kane and Kendall Counties
  • Bridge Communities
  • Children’s Waiting Room, Kane County Courthouse
  • Day One Network
  • Give Me Five, U-46 Elgin Public School
  • Head Start
  • Hessed House
  • Mutual Ground
  • Outreach Community Ministries
  • Pioneer Elementary School, West Chicago
  • Safe Harbor, DuPage County Courthouse
  • Smart Steps
  • The Light of the Heart

Thank you to everyone who donated, sorted and distributed books to help at-risk children in our community!
