The Children’s Book Project builds literacy by bringing free books to children who need them.
We are OPEN for all regular hours, including Labor Day!
SUNDAY OCTOBER 1, 11 am – 2 pm :: CELEBRATING 25 YEARS! A quarter century ago, founder Vicki Pollack noticed a need at local public schools and began collecting and giving away children’s books from her home in San Francisco. 25 years, a couple of moves, countless volunteer hours, and over 2.5 million books later, the Children’s Book Project continues to fulfill our mission to build literacy by bringing free books to children who need them. We look forward to celebrating our silver anniversary with you (because we couldn’t do it without you!) on Sunday, October 1 (please note the date change) at Playland @43rd Avenue (outside our book site) from 11 am – 2 pm. Join us for live music, kids’ activities, book giveaway, tours of our site, and more!
