CLEVELAND KIDS' BOOK BANK
Saturday, September 28 | 1:00-3:00 p.m.
The mission of the Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank is to foster improved literacy and a love of reading by providing free books to children in need. Studies show that being read to as a child and having books in the home are the two most important predictors of future academic success. Yet two-thirds of low-income families do not own a single children’s book.
Since their first distribution in March 2016, Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank has given away more than one million books to families in need through more than 700 partner organizations and with the help of 4,000 volunteers. It distributes 40,000 - 60,000 books a month to low-income children through partners and more than 100 Little Free Libraries.
Join us in browsing, batching and boxing books for distribution to community organizations. Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Parking is free and plentiful in the attached lot.
