About

Join ServeUGA this semester for volunteering opportunities with Books for Keeps! Books for Keeps works to improve children's reading achievement by addressing barriers related to the accessibility and appeal of reading material.

We volunteer on an ongoing basis at Books for Keeps.  Once you sign-up, a Service Ambassador (ServeUGA site leader) will be in touch with you with more information about what to expect.

Books for Keeps is maintaining strict safety guidelines in order to provide a safe work environment for all volunteers and staff. Adhering to the following rules is mandatory when volunteering in-person until further notice:
  • All volunteers are to wear face masks. If you do not have a face mask of your own, one will be provided to you.
  • All volunteers must sanitize their hands when they arrive and as needed throughout their shift.
  • All volunteers must maintain social distancing protocols and provide 6 feet of distance between themselves and others while working in the warehouse.
  • All volunteers are asked to leave any snacks or drinks in their vehicle and may excuse themselves to use them as needed.
  • All volunteers must answer the registration questions in the affirmative in order to attend a shift.
  • We do not have access to a public bathroom at this time and ask that you make the necessary accommodations prior to arriving.
  • Books for Keeps reserves the right to excuse volunteers from the shift if any of the above rules are not followed.

Parking Details
***Important info on getting to the warehouse***

The warehouse is at 420 Athena Drive, near Athens Tech and Southern Brewing Company. Please follow the directions below. There is no signage at the road, so it is easy to pass right by it!
- If you're coming from Hull Road/Hwy 29, you'll go over a set of railroad tracks. Our building is the third driveway on the right after the railroad tracks.
- Look for the doorway with the blue awning facing the road.
- When you pull into the parking lot, drive all of the way to the far side - you'll see a door with the Books for Keeps logo, next to a loading dock.
