Michigan State University invites the public to help shine a light for children and teens on the world that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. envisioned. The university wants to help open young minds with a virtual Stuff the Library project as part of its annual MLK celebration through the end of January.

“Our goal is to raise awareness and promote books with a diverse representation of people and topics. We want to get books into the hands of children in Ingham County and the surrounding area who are ages 0-18 by partnering with local schools and organizations,” said project co-creator Jaimie Hutchison, deputy director at the MSU WorkLife Office.

There are several ways to get the books to children. The options provided by MSU include:

  • Shop for books from the Amazon wish list and mail them to the donation collection point saved within the wish list. Books can also be purchased from a Black Indigenous People of Color bookstore or local bookstore. Mail books from those bookstores to WorkLife Office, c/o MLK Stuff Library, 479 W. Circle Drive Linton Hall, Suite 116/118, East Lansing, MI 48824. The address is only for mail deliveries and is not a drop-off location.
  • Donate funds digitally, and the shopping will be done for you.
  • Read and record yourself. Simply select a book from the list that you own, borrow or checkout online to read. Then upload a recording to a website. Further details can be found at msu.edu/stuff-library-book-drive-mlk.

Ingham County schools and child care centers with kids can request to receive donations by filling out this form.

Information and other events for Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Celebration can be found on the MSU Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives website at inclusion.msu.edu/awards/mlk-commemorative-celebration/index.html.
