Dream Big Book Drive on MLK Day 2017 @ Durham Central Park
Jan 16 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join Book Harvest on MLK Day — Monday, January 16, 2017 — from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., at Durham Central Park, for our biggest event of the year!

Inspired by Dr. King’s vision of a world in which every child has the chance to realize his or her full potential, Book Harvest marks MLK Day with the Dream Big Book Drive, an annual community-wide celebration of diversity, literacy, and book ownership for all kids.

This event is for EVERYONE! Round up your new and gently used children’s books – and those of your neighbors, friends, classmates, and coworkers – and bring them to Durham Central Park on the afternoon of MLK Day. Working together, we can ensure that all our children have books!

This is a great event for children and families! Running Dream Big book drives at workplaces, schools, and places of worship is a terrific teambuilder! Learn more at
