• You can still participate in Tenikka's Books for Kids: Donate new and gently used children's books

    By: Karlyn McKell


    There's still time to donate to Tenikka's Books for Kids. You can drop off new or gently used children's books through this weekend at all Jacksonville Public Library, St. Johns County Public Library and Nassau County Public Library locations! Find the library nearest you and check their weekend hours. 

    You can also double your donations by purchasing books from San Marco Books and More! You can either purchase the books in store or call and purchase them over the phone: (904) 396-7597. This is a great way to support a local business.

    Our Amazon registry is also available this year for people who want to buy books online.  Once you've selected books you'd like to donate on the registry, head to check out. If you'd like the books to be mailed directly to the library, select '

    Tenikka’s Books for Kids (#TB4K) is a book drive collecting children’s books for our libraries summer learning programs. All eligible books will be given out to children enrolled in the programs so that they can have reading materials of their own.

    If you have any additional questions about the drive, please send an email to TB4K@actionnewsjax.com.
