We’re making our new Book Bank more comfortable, serving more clients every month, and have given out more free books for children who need them in the first six months of 2021 than in all of last year. We’re receiving ever more donations of beautiful, new and like-new books from drives, publishers, authors, and individuals. And we’re grateful for the crucial support of dedicated volunteers.

But if you haven’t been to the Book Bank yet, don’t take it from us—take it from heroes like our longtime client Lisa (above) and many others who give books, get books, and volunteer for children who need them for equity in literacy, learning, and life! Our lifeline to literacy lets all kids find themselves — and lose themselves — in the pages of good books. Together, we weave the lifeline to make our communities stronger.
