Imagine a world where all children can see themselves in the pages of a book. Imagine a world where books can be windows to learn about other cultures, critical contributors to our world, and movements that have helped to shape our nation.

This year, the MSU Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Celebration Planning Committee is hosting a virtual Stuff the Library event as a component of the week’s celebration.

Our goal is to raise awareness, promote books with a diverse representation of people and topics, and to get books into the hands of children in Ingham County and the surrounding area ages 0-18, partnering with local schools and organizations.

You can be involved in several ways:

  1. Shop our Amazon Wishlist and and mail books to the donation collection point address saved with the Amazon Wishlist. Books will be dispersed to local schools and organizations. Or shop a Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) owned bookstore or local book store like these bookshop.org, https://www.liberationstationbookstore.com/ The Amazon list can still be referenced or you can choose a book of your liking that fits the theme! 
  2. Donate to our Crowd Power page and we will do the shopping for you!
     
  3. Volunteer! Record a video of yourself reading a book that means something to you from our list, OR for longer books, read, review and recommend a book for older children via video. 
    • Faculty and Staff visit Serve.MSU to volunteer
    • MSU Students visit Serve.MSU to volunteer
    • More information about accessing recorded books will be available as details are finalized.
  4. Request books: Schools and childcare centers with kids age 0-18 can request to receive book donations (targeting Ingham County Schools due to pick up location in Okemos). Donations will be provided based not he ability to match requests with incoming donations.  Fill out this form or, use this QR link
