LGBTQ+ Children's Book Drive - Ten Oaks Project

lgbtq+ Children’s Book Drive

The LGBTQ+ community now has more children’s books that are inclusive and wonderful than we ever did and the Ten Oaks Project has teamed up with Venus Envy and Family Services Ottawa to run a book drive to collect some of these amazing books! We are aiming to create a travelling shared library that will be used by us and our community partners at various events and our camp programs!

You may donate a book at the Venus Envy store online or in person. Check out how below:


  • Go to Venus Envy’s website.
  • Pick out the book you’d like to buy, add it to your cart and check out.
  • For shipping method, under ‘Calculate Shipping Cost’ choose ‘I will pick up my order at Venus Envy’ 
  • At the very bottom of the check out page, you’ll see a section for ‘Order Comments’. Please make sure you enter ‘LGBTQ+ Children’s Book Drive’ under the comments, and finalize your order.
