Get Books

I am extremely grateful for the Children’s Book Project! There is no way I could have stocked my classroom library with such diverse, challenging, and leveled books without the Children’s Book Project. In addition, their open doors and hearts inspire me every time I visit. Thank you!

Book Site

Organizations that serve low income children are welcome to get free books for infants through teens at our Book Bank. Make an appointment to visit during our Open Hours on the available date of your choice.

Each client must have their own appointment confirmed via email, and is subject to review for eligibility for our services. Review the confirmation instructions before every visit, as we frequently update our procedures. If you didn’t receive a confirmation, either you didn’t complete your reservation or it’s in your junk folder and you’ll need to add the address to your contacts. You’ll get a confirmation and two reminders before your appointment to make it easy to cancel or reschedule if you can’t make it.

In keeping with recent public health recommendations, capacity is strictly limited; properly fitted N95 masks are required; and clients must provide proof of vaccination, preferably with booster to be inside the Book Bank. N95 masks provided for those who don’t have one. Children under 5 years old not allowed. Appointments subject to cancellation or change as public health orders require.

Appointments posted 60 days in advance. Same day appointments may become available as your colleagues cancel appointments they can’t keep.
