Book Baskets Partnership
Book Baskets was started in 1996 by Mildred Abraham who wanted to create a way to get lightly used books, like the ones her grandchildren owned but would not keep forever, into the hands of children who had few or no books of their own. She assembled a board and began collecting books through a few area schools. Things grew from there and today Book Baskets is collecting books from 25 schools, and giving out over 11,000 books a year in Charlottesville and Albemarle County.
Book Baskets emphasizes book ownership by placing a bookplate sticker in each of our books and by requesting that the children who choose the books put their full names in them. For many years, the Community Dental Center has been a beneficiary of Book Baskets. With each appointment, all children treated at the Dental Center receive a gift of a book from Book Baskets. Many children look forward to taking home their very own book and the Dental Center is very grateful to Book Basket for their kind and loving service to our patients.
