How to Help

Right now, we have an urgent need for new funding to keep our reading rooms open all season. In 2017, a record number of neighborhoods have asked us to create a way to gather around learning. Over 90% are low-income. Simply put, we’re running out of funds to pay our drivers and program staff to answer every call. You can help!
