Reading on the Ranch


Give ranch books to kids this holiday season – donate books today!

Help The Fence Post support our elementary schools in their need of books for students, with our Reading on the Ranch book drive Nov. 25 – Jan. 5. There are kids who go home with nothing to read, classrooms without enough books to go around and school libraries in need of fresh pages. Please donate new or barely used books from PreK – 5th-grade reading levels.  Readers can mail them to our office using the discounted media mail rate through the Post Office, drop them off at our office or purchase online to shop and ship. There is a bin for after hours drop off at our office. At the end of our book drive, we will distribute to local rural schools in our region.

3 ways to donate:

  1. Mail

    New or like new books to: The Fence Post, 501 8th Ave., Greeley, CO 80631

  2. Drop Off

    Locations in CO, NE and WY  listed below

In conjunction with this book drive, we are also doing a coloring page contest. Jan Swan Wood will be drawing up a cartoon for us and one lucky kiddo will receive a local authors’ signed children's book. Look for it in an upcoming issues of The Fence Post.


No child should go to bed at night or to school without a story to read.
We need your help to spread the word and support literacy in our rural schools.
Join us in spreading some holiday cheer this season.
