One child. One book. 7,740 times!

What’s the very first book you remember? Did you find it in the school library? Or was it your very own? Actually owning books and having easy access to them at a very early age is vital to every child’s development.

Working with local, regional, and national partners, In A World With Books supplies books, free of charge, to disadvantaged and underserved children. Books they can keep in their rooms, beside their beds, books they can read again and again.
