Give a Financial Gift

Greenville Literacy Association relies on the generosity of our community members to grow our programs and maximize our impact.

By making a financial contribution to GLA, you’re not only providing valuable funding for our mission, you’re helping to build a better community for us all.


Give Your Books

Book donations are currently suspended due to the spread of COVID-19. We will resume accepting donations on April 2, 2020.

We accept books* from the first week in September to the end of July at our McAlister Square location Monday – Friday from 9am to 4pm. Please check our Facebook page for holiday and inclement weather updates.

Directions to the McAlister Square Donation Area

Drive around to the back of McAlister Square on the Publix side of the building. Continue all the way around the building to the back. The dropoff zone is near the large blue dumpsters. Please give us a call (864-467-3456) once you’ve arrived and we will have someone help you unload and provide you with a tax receipt.
