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! All donations will be matched 1:1 up to $30,000 thanks to our friends Laura and Paul Mishkin at the Calico Foundation. 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.
