This holiday season, please consider giving the gift of literacy! Books for Kids promotes early literacy by building libraries within preschools, Head Start centers, and family homeless shelters and by providing Library Specialists who get children excited about books and reading.

We're working to ensure every child has access to books that reflect their lives, spark their imaginations, and prepare them for a lifetime of learning. But we can't do this without your support. 

Here's how you can make a difference this holiday season with examples at each giving level:

Hosts two interactive Story Times

Our Library Specialists don't just read books aloud, they put on a play and a magic show rolled into one. You can help bring books to life in Story Time which promotes both social-emotional and early reading skills.

Starts home library collections for
four families

We strive to send children home with at least six brand new books every year. You can help build their collections so that there are always books at home for families to read and share together.

Provides child-friendly furniture for a family shelter library

Our library spaces are warm and welcoming rooms where children and families can spend time together. You can help us furnish these rooms and facilitate a culture of reading.

Track our progress!

Goal: $40,000

We're dedicated to creating a country where every child is surrounded by books and has access to the high-quality educational opportunities they deserve. Join Us.
