We create a culture of reading by filling entire classrooms, programs and neighborhoods with beautiful, quality and inclusive books, but we can’t do it alone. 

The Children’s Book Bank at SMART Reading is funded almost entirely by generous contributions from local organizations and community members like you. That means that every gift ensures our work continues - engaging the local community to collect, sort, clean, restore, bundle, and distribute 100,000 new and gently-used children’s books to 10,000 kids and families who need books.

Filling children’s homes with books of their own ignites curiosity, sparks imagination, and opens young minds to limitless possibilities. We’re glad you’re here with us.
