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 serving low income children are welcome to get free books for infants through teens at our Book Bank.

Each client must book their own appointment to visit during Open Hours on an available date. You may arrive at any time during Open Hours on the date of your appointment. You’ll receive a confirmation via email and two reminders — one a week in advance, and another three days before your appointment. Know before you go: Review confirmation instructions before each 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.) All appointments are subject to review for eligibility for our services.

We’re still observing strict health protocols to keep our doors open to serve you: capacity is limited; properly fitted N95 masks required inside the Book Bank. No exceptions. We’ll give you a reusable N95 mask if you don’t have one, and ask you to retain it for future visits. Appointments subject to cancellation or change as public health orders require.

Same day appointments may become available as others cancel/reschedule.
