Mission Statement

The Children's Book Project gives free books to children who need them for equity in literacy, learning, and life.

Description

We distribute free books to children through Title 1 schools, public health clinics, shelters, community organizations, and others serving low-income families. Since 1992, we have given over 3 million books to facilities serving hundreds of thousands of children throughout Northern California. Literacy attainment is directly tied to academic achievement and lifetime outcomes, yet children in economically disadvantaged communities do not have the same access to books as their more affluent peers. The Children’s Book Project is committed to closing the opportunity gap and lifting up our community by raising readers.

We collect donated books, then count and sort them by subject matter and age level. Teachers, caseworkers, and other community workers come to our book site to select free books they need for the children they serve.
