The San Francisco Book Wagon travels to elementary schools during the week and neighborhood parks on weekends. We offer a couple of ways that people can get involved. 


We are happy to take donations of gently used books appropriate for elementary school age children. We are particularly in need of Spanish language books. We can pick up or you can drop off books at an arranged location. 


We will post a document of books that are popular with children. Please email us with additional suggestions to bookwagonsf@gmail.com

We are interested in seeking volunteers to help with book distribution. Contact us online or meet us at a park on a Saturday. We post our park schedule on Instagram @thebookwagonSF



We are an independent organization, but we benefit from the knowledge, organization, and experience of many folks. 

The Children’s Book Project The Children’s Book Project gives books to children who need them for equity in literacy, learning, and life.
