Contribute Books for Classrooms

"Whether it is hummingbirds or roller-coasters, when students discover something in science that excites them they want to read every book on the subject they can get their hands on!" Kerri Shannon, Hayward Shoreline Interpretive Center

CRS gives books to classroom teachers throughout the year.  We'll find a good classroom home for any new or gently-used science related books appropriate for Kindergarten through 6th grade students.  Nonfiction, as well as fiction that ties in with a scientific theme or issue, are welcome. If you would like to donate books, please email us at
