Important Note on COVID-19

Operation Paperback is continuing operations. However, we strongly advise volunteers to practice social distancing as well as postpone any group packing parties or fundraisers. If possible, we also encourage volunteers to utilize parcel pick up service from the USPS instead of standing in line at the post office.  We are following the situation closely and are adhering to CDC and USPS statements regarding mail safety. Our troops, veterans and their families need our support and comfort through a book more than ever.

About Us

Operation Paperback is a national, non-profit organization, whose volunteers collect gently-used books and send them to American troops overseas, as well as veterans and military families here at home. Since 1999, we have shipped over 2.9 million books to countries all over the world (shown in orange on the adjacent map).

Our service members and their families make sacrifices every day for our country. It takes so little to let them know that they are appreciated. When you donate to Operation Paperback, you will let America’s military community know that you appreciate their service and their sacrifices.
