A bookshelf plays a very important role in building a love for reading as well as creating and sustaining an in-home library. It is our goal to ensure that every family that registers for our free book distribution, also receives a FREE bookshelf.
Our goal is to distribute 500 bookshelves a year throughout the DC Metropolitan Area. Become a bookshelf sponsor and ensure the more children have access to an in-home library.
