Creating a Literature-Rich Culture

Books for Every Child

Every child deserves access to books. The Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank is building a literature-rich culture in Greater Cleveland, one home library at a time.

A book in the hands of a child is a magical thing! Books fuel our imaginations, teach us empathy, and help parents build bonds with their kids. Books increase our vocabularies and encourage academic growth.

Books inspire our dreams and expand our worlds to limitless horizons.
