…a group of caring St. Louis community members came together to form an organization centered around one similar passion:  the joy of reading.

These volunteers knew the benefits books could provide to children who were seeking an outlet to cope with everyday struggles, and how the practice of reading could help a child be “Ready To Learn” in life and in the classroom.

One by one, these new and gently-used books, filled with stories of adventure, magic and mystery, have given more than 3,900 children each school year, the chance to start their own personal libraries and the confidence to read out loud to their families and classmates.
