The Children’s Book Project builds literacy by bringing free books to children who need them since 1992.
The Children’s Book Project is grateful to all in our community who made our 25th year our most successful ever! Together, we:
to more than 1,500 teachers and children’s service providers;
from 700 donors (including 25,000 from 65 book drives);
who make it possible to build literacy by bringing free books to children!
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 2019. 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.
Volunteers, Board members, and staff thank all our supporters who joined us on October 1 to celebrate our silver anniversary! We’re grateful for the generosity of our event sponsors, including Sarah Goodwin Illustration & Design, artist Michael Rios, Bi-Rite, Trader Joe’s, Peet’s Coffee & Tea on Cole Street, Arizmendi Bakery, Numi Organic Tea, Sparky’s Fun & Joy, and Playland at 43rd Avenue. Here are a few photos from the celebration:
