Mission Statement

Open Books is a volunteer-based literacy organization and nonprofit bookstore dedicated to raising awareness about illiteracy and fostering a love of reading by people of all ages and skills.

Description

Open Books is Chicago's first nonprofit literacy bookstore and learning center: a two-storied dream where proceeds from the sale of 50,000+ used books on the fun, colorful, comfortable first floor will go to fund a spectrum of unique adult, family, and computer literacy programs upstairs. Volunteers work with literacy groups around the city to help students of all ages make literacy a fun and fundamental part of their lives.
