BookEnds believes that a literate child is the foundation of a thriving community. By providing access to books, BookEnds gives children the resources to develop literacy skills and to experience the joy and imagination of reading.

BookEnds' diverse recipients include inner-city schools, youth centers, homeless shelters, family literacy centers, after-school enrichments programs, children's group homes and juvenile detention facilities.

In many of our recipient organizations the ratio of books to kids is just 3 to 1. The national average is 22 to 1.
