February marks our 8th anniversary of giving free books to children in Greater Cleveland! Thank you to our community for the incredible support of our mission of getting free books to kids.
The mission of the Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank is to foster literacy and a love of reading by distributing free books to children in need through collaboration with community partners.
The Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank is working to ensure all kids in Greater Cleveland have books to build their own home libraries.
A book in the hands of a child is a magical thing! Reading fuels imaginations, teaches empathy, supports academic achievement, and helps parents build bonds with their kids.
We’ve distributed 4.3 million free books to 100,000+ kids in need in Greater Cleveland and continue to distribute 45,000 books per month.
Partners are the backbone of our work. More than 1,700 partners distribute our books to the children and families they serve.
Volunteers fuel our operation. More than 10,000 individuals have sorted and packed books for distribution to our partners.
