The Children's Book Bank

The Children's Book Bank is working to close the book equity gap that exists for preschool children of low-income homes in Portland. To this end, The Children's Book Bank is a place Portland's families can donate the story/picture books their children are no longer reading. Volunteers spruce-up, sort, and bundle books for distribution to children who might not otherwise have books of their own at home. Schools, congregations, civic groups, and businesses are invited to host book drives to get more books into the hands of children who really need them.
