What We Do

We provide books, as presents to the 60,000 children in the greater Charlotte area growing up with few, if any age-appropriate books at home. We collect books that other children have out grown and repurpose them, many as wrapped presents. We also provide unique programming called the Magic Book Parties which helps more than 70% of our kids effectively develop a habit of reading for pleasure on most nights, and we give them the books to do it! 100% of our Title I teachers reports Magic Book Parties are either very necessary or extremely necessary for success in their classrooms. Please clean out your book shelves, grab your children and come volunteer with us either at the warehouse or at our events or write encouraging bookworm letters for us at home or with your own group.

Interesting Info

More than 300,000 donated books have cycled though our Operations Center since January 2012.
We are the 2012 recipient of the Dale Earnhardt Legend Leadership Award for unique work with children, education and the environment.
Each summer we host a power-house high school and college internship program called "Team Read." Our 40+ interns host more than 150 literacy events each summer.
