Book Access

Far too many young people across the United States do not have access to books. In under-resourced communities, public libraries, school libraries, and bookstores may be unavailable. Classrooms may not have curated collections that reflect the lived experiences of the young people within the room and those around the country and around the world. 

The following resources may help you and your community expand access to books, through grants and other opportunities.
