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!

Organizations that serve low income children and their families are welcome to request free books for infants through teens. While our book site remains closed to the public, you may email a request for curbside pick up by appointment that includes the following information:

• Name, job title

• School/Organization name, city and county

• Economic demographic served (% Free/Reduced Price Lunch, Title 1, etc.)

• Number of children served


Organizations that serve economically disadvantaged children and their families are welcome at our book site to select free, new and gently used books for infants through teens. If you work with children at a homeless shelter, public school, hospital, nonprofit daycare center, or other community organization, come to our book site in the Outer Sunset and select the free books you need.
