The Martha Boyer Young Readers Fund at the Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank provides first books for young children.

Why is Early Literacy Important?

The first few years of life are critical for a child’s brain development. Early literacy helps children develop tools they need to become successful readers and lifelong learners. These skills allow a young child to enter kindergarten with a love of books and a readiness to learn.

The Kids’ Book Bank delivers 45,000+ free books each Month to low-income Greater Cleveland families, with 8 paid staff and 9,000+ Volunteers.
