Open Books cultivates the literacy skills of thousands of children and youth each year, from those who need intervention to those who desire enrichment. Learn more about our array of instructional programs and how we transform students’ abilities with — and attitudes about — reading and writing.
Through our book programs, we create libraries in schools and nonprofit centers, support literacy events in the community, and give students books to keep and enjoy with their families. Learn more about how we provide readers of all ages with engaging, appropriate and high-quality books.
Programs are the heart of Open Books. From one-on-one reading practice with young students and book grants to school classrooms all the way through intensive novel-writing sessions and celebrations of our newly published authors, we transform thousands of lives each year through reading, writing, and the power of used books.
