The Children’s Book Project builds literacy by bringing free books to children who need them since 1992.

Holiday Gift Wrap at Folio Books

On December 16-23, volunteers from the Children’s Book Project will wrap your gifts at Folio Books in Noe Valley. Save these dates to get your holiday shopping done, while supporting CBP and a wonderful local bookstore. You can even pre-order books to pick up during one of our wrap sessions!

Help Us Find a New Home

The San Francisco Unified School District recently announced that our book site location will be redeveloped as teacher housing. We’re thrilled for our teachers who will get a chance to live affordably in the city, but now CBP has to find a new home as early as June 2018. If you know of any available, affordable office space in San Francisco—even shared space—please let us know! We’re looking for: 2,000 square feet; ground floor entry (or elevator access); nearby parking; location in San Francisco, ideally in the Bayview, Western Addition, or Outer Mission. Please contact CBP Board President Risa Schwartz with ideas or leads.
