Help Bay Area children to thrive by improving their access to books

Recently Completed Libraries

Access Books Bay Area is a non-profit organization that provides public elementary schools in under-resourced districts with new books and a refreshed library space. We believe all children in the Bay Area, regardless of socioeconomic status, deserve a welcoming school library with new, culturally relevant pleasure reading books to discover a love of reading.

By the Numbers

Since 2016 our non-profit has been busy bringing literacy to children, one library at a time
