A message from the Children’s Book Bank:


One parent of a little boy from Portland Public Schools Head Start told us how his “eyes light up” when reading his books from The Children’s Book Bank.  He told her, “Mom, look I have my own books.  Now I can read them to my friends.”  It’s this excitement and pride in owning books that will keep him going back to books again and again, developing successful habits for reading, school, and life.


This past school year, The Children’s Book Bank delivered books to over 6,800 low-income children who otherwise may not have books of their own at home. This success would not be possible without our volunteers and donors like you. Thank you for being part of our community of supporters!


Thank you for your recent donation of children's books!  You have provided a critical resource for engaging children in reading.
