Turning Dollars and Coins Into Books and Smiles!

One for Books® provides an easy and effective way to unite the school community and provide more books for kids and teachers. All funds collected through One for Books are used to buy more books from the Book Fair. Funds can be used to:
  • Give more students a chance to participate in the Book Fair.
  • Add books to the school library.
  • Help teachers add more books to their classroom shelves.
  • Donate to another school or community organization that could use more books.
Each year, thousands of schools across the country participate in One for Books. Scholastic matches the monetary donations schools generate, with a donation of up to one million books to three national non-profit organizations dedicated to helping kids and families in need: Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc., the Kids In Need Foundation, and the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

By working together, we can help connect kids with more books than ever before.

"With your great support we have been able to fulfill the Christmas holiday dreams for millions of our nation’s neediest children. Many of these children might well have been forgotten otherwise."
—William Grein, Marine Toys for Tots Foundation
