JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — For a sixth year, local bookstore San Marco Books and More is partnering with Tenikka’s Books for Kids!

Tenikka’s Books for Kids is collecting new books for local children from birth to 18 years old. This year’s book donation drive is March 27 – April 8, 2023. All the books will be given, for free, to children who meet their reading goals while participating in the Jacksonville Public Library Summer Reading Program.


The bookstore has been a strong supporter of Tenikka’s Books for Kids since the drive started in 2018. You can buy books in-store and leave your donations in a specially marked drop box inside San Marco Books and More. The store is located at 1971 San Marco Boulevard in Jacksonville.
