Children's Book Bank

The Children's Book Bank exists to put as many books as possible into the hands and lives of children in need.

By providing opportunities for children to read and be read to, the Children's Book Bank is an important tool in improving school readiness for prekindergarten-aged children and enhancing literacy in school-aged children.


• An important study shows the most successful way to improve the reading achievement of low-income children is to increase their access to print.
• In middle-income neighborhoods the ratio of books per child is 13 to 1; in low-income neighborhoods the ratio is a staggering 1 (age appropriate) book for every 300 children
