Operation Paperback


Mission Statement

Giving our troops, veterans and military families the opportunity to escape into a good book since 1999.


Operation Paperback began in 1999, sending its first shipments to Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. We have since shipped 2.9 million books to over 30 locations overseas.

We have 19,000+ volunteers from all 50 states. These individual citizens, American families and community groups form a network of shippers that send around 15,000 books per month.
