What We Do

Promising Pages collects donated books and distributes them to underserved children. We also provide innovative literacy programming that cultivates a lifelong love of reading. Fueled by studies showing that children who can’t read proficiently by third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school, Promising Pages works with dozens of community partners to provide nearly 200,000 free books annually. We are Charlotte’s largest and most efficient distributor of upcycled books aimed at addressing this critical – and solvable – community need.

Interesting Info

More than 600,000 donated books have cycled though our Operations Center since January 2012.
Each summer we host a college and high school internship program called "Team Read". Our interns host more than 100 literacy events each summer.
25 By '25: We would like to provide a home library of 25 books to each household in the Charlotte-area book desert by 2025.
