Now through December 16, Books-a-million Holiday Book and Toy Drive takes place at all 250+ Books-A-Million locations – including Birmingham! They’ll give your thoughtful gesture to kids at Children’s of Alabama, the Ronald McDonald House, Toys for Tots, Boys and Girls Club of America and more.

The Gift Of Giving

“Each year, we have the privilege of spreading love to thousands of families and kids through generous donations from our customers,” said Scott Kappler, Vice President of Marketing at Books-A-Million.

“This outpouring of support is what makes this annual holiday drive such a success. It is because of their selflessness and dedication that we are able to positively impact communities and give families something tangible to celebrate the holidays.”

BAM’s Holiday Cheer

Customers interested in participating in the holiday drive can either choose a personal favorite or select from one of the many curated suggestions located near the store checkout.

Festive items include classic holiday books, such as Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!,” the time-honored tale “The Polar Express” and family-favorite “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”

Or maybe you’ll choose to give a modern holiday tale, like “Don’t Push The Button! A Christmas Adventure,” by Bill Cotter or a new release like “The Vanderbeeks of 141st Street,” by Karina Yan Glaser.

Donation Details

All donations must be purchased, as new, from Books-A-Million. In addition please visit for more information. A complete list of organizations partnering with Books-A-Million for this year’s Holiday Book & Toy Drive can be found at
