Book Grants

Books can spark inspiration and independence.

However, many individuals — including struggling readers — have limited access to books.

Open Books is changing that.

Every year, Open Books gives away 135,000 engaging, appropriate and high-quality books, hand-selected from inventory generously donated by the public. Through our Book Grants, we create libraries in schools and nonprofit centers, support literacy events in the community, and provide students who lack access with books to keep and enjoy with their families.
