The Children's Book Bank fills homes and lives with engaging, culturally diverse books because all children deserve to have books of their own. When they do, magical things happen — books ignite curiosity, spark the imagination, and open young minds to limitless possibilities. Our programming is directed toward children in need from birth through grade 8 and supports early education and literacy development by providing books as tools. These books mean children have the tools they need to develop important pre-reading skills, to support early reading achievement, and to prevent learning loss when school is not in session.
