Book Harvest kicks off its second decade with its 10th annual Dream Big Book Drive and Community Celebration on the afternoon of Martin Luther King Jr. Day – Monday, Jan. 18. A newly-designed, contactless drive-through celebration of kids and books, the 2021 Dream Big celebration will take place from noon to 4 p.m. at Durham Central Park.

Community members are invited to bring donations of new and gently used children’s books to Dream Big, where popular children’s book characters will be on hand to cheer on attendees as they drive up and to help unload their book donations. All donated books will be provided to children in Durham and beyond through Book Harvest’s many programs. All attendees will also receive free, new string backpacks full of children’s books to take home and keep forever.

In addition the “Dream Big 2021 News Special” will premiere at noon that day on Book Harvest’s Facebook page. This 25-minute, heartwarming program casts local children as newscasters reporting on their love of books and interviewing Book Harvest’s many supporters and fans.

Dream Big 2021 is part of the National Day of Service.
