Hosted by The Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Celebration Planning Committee

Imagine a world where all children can see themselves in the pages of a book. Imagine a world where books can be windows to learn about other cultures, critical contributors to our world, and movements that have helped to shape our nation.

The MSU Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Celebration Planning Committee is hosting another Stuff the Library event as a component of this year's celebration to benefit Flint Community Schools. The event aims to fill school libraries in with books on topics of social justice and with characters representing diverse backgrounds.

Will you help us reach our goal of $15,000 and over 1,000 books donated? Through our partnerships with local schools and organizations, your support helps raise awareness around social justice, assists in promoting books with diverse representation or characters, stories, and authors and gets the books into the hands of children ages 0-18 in Flint and the surrounding area.



You can be involved in several ways:

    • Amazon Wishlist and mail books to the donation collection point address saved under MSU MLK Committee with the Amazon Wishlist. Books will be dispersed to local schools and organizations.
