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

"Thank you for your help in fully stocking our library at FOB Shank in Afghanistan. As a matter of fact, we had so many books come in that we have forwarded books to our outlying locations. Now they are also fully stocked. I know that I have read a few books since I have been here. I will have my assistantsend you a photograph of the library here so that you can see for yourself. Please be aware that we have no more space here at this location. Emerson B"

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.
