You can help the Books Galore Program enrich the lives of abused, neglected and needy children served by the Guardians ad Litem, Court Appointed Special Advocates, and the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court with your donation. Bring your new or gently used book donations to the JJC. We will have collection boxes located around the building for your convenience.
How are the books distributed?
Some courtrooms use the books to encourage family time by assigning some of the youth to read to their younger siblings. Toddlers often come to the Juvenile Justice Center to wait for parents' or siblings' cases to be heard. GALs, Court Staff, and Sheriff's Deputies have books on hand to give to these children.
Some of the books are used for reading and tutoring groups in the Detention Center.
Please help us provide books to every child served by GALs, CASAs, and the Juvenile Court.
