Books for Bears

Roberts Academy at Mercer University is hosting a book drive!

An elementary school library needs 15-20 books per learner, which is why we need your help to stock our library shelves!

Your book donation will make a meaningful difference in the lives of dyslexic students by providing them with access to engaging and educational reading materials.

Roberts Academy serves students in grades 2-5. Please drop new or gently used children’s books in boxes located at the following bookstores:

Bear’s Books

Gottwals Books - Byron
311 GA-49 Suite 190, Byron, GA 31008

Gottwals Books - Macon
2834 Riverside Dr, Macon, GA 31204

Mercer University Bookstore
1602 Montpelier Ave #100, Macon, GA 31207

The Book Drive starts on June 1 and ends on August 1.
