What is “Bookmarks Across America”?

Bookmarks Across America is my small way of celebrating my favorite holiday – Read Across America Day (March 2nd) – by sending out FREE bookmarks to kids, classrooms, schools, libraries, clubs, literacy groups, and more across the United States. In addition to celebrating reading, the black and white side of the bookmarks can be colored in and personalized as well, giving kids the opportunity to enjoy a little art making as well!

How many bookmarks can I get?

As many as you need! If you just want one for your child then you can order just one. If you want to give out bookmarks to your entire school, that’s cool too! Just fill out the form below! I do ask that you only order as many as you need and let us know the name of your school/organization/library/classroom so we can check our list and make sure to not to send out duplicates. Each year I order 10,000 bookmarks and want to reach as many kids as possible.

Bookmarks will be available until I run out! If you want to make sure you receive them by Read Across America Day on March 2nd, please order by February 20th.

What will it cost me?

NOTHING!! This bookmark giveaway is completely free, including shipping and handling!

That being said, if you’re feeling generous and want to donate to the printing and shipping costs of the bookmarks, I won’t say no. You can make a contribution here. Any little bit is welcome.

Are there any restrictions?

Since we’re celebrating Read Across America, bookmarks are only being sent within the United States. However, if you’re outside of the United States, you can still join in on the fun by printing your own bookmarks with this template.

Additionally, I do ask that if you’re ordering bookmarks that will be delivered to someone besides yourself, you get permission from the school/district/etc. and let them know to expect the bookmarks and what to do with them.

How long have you been doing this?

This is my second year doing Bookmarks Across America. Last year I sent approximately 9,000 bookmarks to children in 15 states! I hope to continue this project for many more years to come and to grow it to reach children in all 50 states.

I have questions and/or comments…Who do I contact?

Use this contact form and I’ll get back to you ASAP!
