Children’s Museum Book Bank

The Children’s Museum Book Bank is dedicated to enriching the lives of children in need by providing as many high quality books as possible to support early literacy and books in the home.

We believe that children who live in under-resourced communities deserve new or like-new books in great condition!

The Children’s Book Bank helps to ensure that all children have quality books in their home, have the pride of book ownership, and have opportunities to read and be read to. The Book Bank program supports school readiness and literacy development in children and enables community partners to better support our children through the gift of like-new books.
