Welcome to the Space where concerned citizens, like yourself are removing financial barriers to child literacy, promoting reading, and providing free books for children to build home libraries.

Millions of children live without books in their home. 

 Join Grassroots Literacy with a $10 or more monthly donation.

Your sustainable donation will enable GCB’s to:

build their literacy skills

enhance love of reading

build home libraries

become informed future leaders

Each contribution = an opportunity for a child to build a home library.

At our annual book fairs, families anxiously arrive prior to opening.

We believe:

      • reading is fundamental, children who are exposed to reading at an early age develop language skills  
      • providing books to children has a major impact on their lives, our communities and world
      • our future leaders are entitled to libraries stocked with collections of culturally diverse, high-quality books

Message From our Founder


Thank you for visiting this important Space where we are removing financial barriers to child literacy for countless families so that children receive books  early and develop a love of reading.  We invite you to read further and join Grassroots Literacy.

According to a 20-year study led by Mariah Evans, University of Nevada, Reno associate professor of sociology and resource economics, parents who have books in the home increase the level of education their children will attain.  Parents attest their child’s reading proficiency is increasing.  Still, books are unaffordable for many families.  GCB has a solution that you may become a part of.

Join Grassroots Literacy with a $10 or more donations.  With your gift, each child receives 10-12 books per year.  As a member of Grassroots Literacy, you will receive visuals of children selecting books you’ve gifted.
