Our free literacy programs and book giveaways inspire low-income, at-risk, and rural children throughout New Hampshire and Vermont to fall in love with books.

Our programs include an application process for organizations that serve children who are at risk of growing up with low literacy skills. This helps us make sure that we support the children who need us most.
