Children's Book Donations

Help us promote early childhood literacy in our downtown neighborhoods!

Books in the home are critical to child development - they not only help build early literacy skills, they also encourage parent and child time that builds healthy attachment. 

Fewer books at home can put children from lower-income families at a disadvantage for school readiness, and every child deserves the opportunity to develop to their full potential!

Please donate and help us ensure vulnerable children can have books of their very own at home!

  • Donations of both new and gently used children's books are welcome!
