In August of 2018, our community lost an incredible human being, Dr. Hindi Krinsky, at the young age of 32. To continue Hindi's legacy, family and friends chose to build three free-standing libraries in her children's school. In order to fill these libraries, we reached out to the community for gently used books. Within two weeks, we received approximately 500 books. We knew then that this was going to be much bigger than just three small libraries. Since January 2019, we have collected over 350,000 books which we've donated to more than 650 organizations throughout the world spanning across all 50 states, Puerto Rico, Africa, Haiti, India & Israel. Together, we continue to share Hindi's passion for reading and love of literature with thousands of children.

Mission Statement

Our organization's mission is to continue the legacy of Dr. Hindi Krinsky, a 32 year old High School English Teacher and Literacy Coordinator, who tragically passed away in 2018 from a complications of Crohn’s Disease. Her goal was to share her love for reading and literature with her High School students. Our goal is to ensure that children in need, who are unable to afford books, have the opportunity to read and own a book, something they otherwise may not be able to afford. By giving the gift of literacy, we are sharing Hindi's passion and keeping her memory alive.


Hindi's Libraries is a 501c3 international nonprofit organization that donates new and gently used children's books all over the world, spanning across 50 states, Israel, India, Puerto Rico and Africa. Books are sent to recipients, completely free of charge, as the nonprofit absorbs all fees associated with shipping. Since our inception in 2018, we've collected more than 185,000 books and partnered with 450 organizations worldwide. All books are dedicated in memory of Dr. Hindi Krinsky, 32 year old educator and mother of 5 who suddenly passed away in August of 2018 due to complications from Crohn's disease.
