The spring rain hasn’t damped our spirits – or our efforts – to get books into the hands of kids in need!
Half a Million Books to CMSD
We recently surpassed 500,000 books given to Cleveland Metropolitan School District students —a major milestone in our partnership.
The district would have spent at least $1.5 million to purchase this quantity of books—now that’s impact!
We are proud to continually provide free books to CMSD scholars—books these students would not otherwise get.

Six Books Can Make a Difference! Help Us Stop the Summer Slide
Research shows that reading just six books over the summer can keep struggling readers from regressing.
Your donation to our Annual Fund campaign will ensure that disadvantaged kids get the books they need before summer break and all summer long—at summer lunch programs, swimming pools and splash pads, recreation centers, and more!
$30 provides 20 disadvantaged kids with six books
