[ARCHIVED] Recycle Book Program Promoting Literacy in Hollywood

Book Donation Drive

Research indicates that having books in the home is strongly linked to educational achievement. Recognizing that reading development is a fundamental component of literacy, the Education Advisory Committee is introducing the “Recycle Book Program”. The program was conceived to help families build a home library for their children.


You can help promote literacy in Hollywood by collecting new or gently-used children’s books age infant through young adult. Books may be dropped off at the locations listed below during regular business hours. Look for a collection box with the Recycle Book label.


City Hall – 2600 Hollywood Boulevard, 1st Floor
David Park Community Center – 108 N. 33rd Court
Boulevard Heights Community Center – 6770 Garfield Street


Community Enhancement Collaboration, Inc. (CEC), a Hollywood-based, non-profit agency will distribute the books to eligible families in the community. Your donated books will enable these families to share in the pleasure of reading.


For more information on the Recycle Book Program please call Clay Milan, Community Development Manager, at 954.921.3271 or via email at cmilan@hollywoodfl.org.
