The East Bay Children’s Book Project was founded to help build literacy by putting books into the hands of children who have little or no access to them. Books are picked up and given directly to children in need by teachers, social workers, health care professionals, community outreach groups, housing authority employees, and police officers. Some are used by schools, daycare and community centers, homeless shelters, and hospitals to create libraries at their sites. The East Bay Children’s Book Project has given out over 675,000 free books since opening its doors in May 2005.
