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

"Dear Mr. Tarpey Thank you for your very complete letter describing the Operation Paperback program. I am so grateful to you for explaining the program to me and for the opportunity to help our soldiers in such a positive way. I have signed up as a volunteer and am also contacting other librarians to see if they would like to help in this effort. I hope you will let me know if there is anything else that I could do related to this project or to any other effort in which you think I might be helpful. "

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.
