What is Select Books?

This inventory of carefully chosen books and resources provides practical approaches to community building, leadership and youth development. We provide these resources at NO CHARGE. Keep them. Share them. Give them away. The only requirement: Within 60 days provide a review for each book you receive.

Note: One copy per title, per person. We designed this program to encourage an individual's growth. We do not send multiple copies to one person or to an organization to distribute.
