Giving our troops the opportunity to escape into a good book since 1999.






"I found your email address via the Operation Paperback website. I wanted to send you an email to thank you, your organization, as well as the Columbia, South Carolina chapter of the Colonial Dames of America. My Team and I arrived here to Afghanistan at the beginning of November and there was a box of books left from the previous unit. Many of my Soldiers have been reading and enjoying those books. This is my 3rd deployment, 1 in Iraq, 2 in Afghanistan, and each deployment I have read at least 2-3 books provided by the generous donations of a very supportive country. Please pass a thank you out to whomever you can....my Soldiers and I REALLY appreciate the support. "

Make a Monetary Donation

While Operation Paperback relies heavily on its volunteer shipping network to deliver books to troops, veterans and military families, we receive hundreds of requests a year for specific titles or what we define as 'high-demand genres' that must be shipped by staff members. In addition, we have a steady stream of special projects where Operation Paperback purchases and ships books in bulk in support of military missions.

What will your donation provide?

$5 will ship one medium-sized box of books to any overseas military location

$20 will help pay for the purchase and shipment of a box of high-demand genre books

Special projects like books from the military Professional Reading Lists to support servicemember professional development goals, books for chaplains to counsel troops before returning home, or books to assist veterans as they heal mentally and physically.
