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






"Operation Paperback and "The Book Cellar" New York, New York, On behalf of D Company 1-1148 Infantry, I would like to extend our thanks for the books and magazines you sent. The package got here fine and a few books even went out on the road that same day. It is nice to be able to read a book or magazine to take our minds somewhere else for a while. We appreciate your support for the mission and for the soldiers. Hope this e-mail finds all of you well. Take care. p.s. Unfortunately you sent those books to a die hard Red Sox fan. No worries though, we still have a few Yankees fans in the company. GO SOX!!!"

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.
