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

"Operation Paperback Members, I want to send a heartfelt THANK YOU to your organization. Your members have sent so many wonderful books for the sailors onboard USS HIGGINS to enjoy that our library is now overflowing! Books are a fantastic way for us all to escape the demanding life at sea. In light of our space limitations, please remove my name from the list of personnel desiring to receive books. Again, thank you VERY much for your support; it means the world to us and we truly appreciate it! "

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.
