The GREAT Literacy Challenge!!

Do you have a favorite book that you read as a child? Charlotte's Web? The Boxcar Children? The Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew?  As part of Boys & Girls Clubs of America's Great Futures Campaign, we have launched The GREAT Literacy Challenge.From July 31st through December 13th (our Holiday Ball), we will be collecting new and gently-used book for our Club members to read. Books can encourage a child to become what they dream of! 


  • Donate new or gently-used, current, age-appropirate books at any of our locations. 
  • Go to  and click on "Wish Lists". Search for "bgcmv" and donate an e-book or an Amazon gift certificate.
  • Head to The Book Rack in Davenport or Moline and donate your credits to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley. With your credits, our Club members will be able to pick out books to take home.


Our mission: "To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens."
