Be a part of our community this spring!

There are so many ways to support Open Books' mission during our Spring fundraising appeal - you can donate, volunteer, shop, or give books! We are grateful to our community for making literacy and book access a priority and hope you join in to make a difference this year.


Make a donation to support our literacy and book access programs - every little bit counts to make a difference for our youth and families! All donations made between May 1 - June 30th will be matched 1:1 by our friends at the Calico Foundation, up to $30,000!
