ReBook

ReBooK (Recycling Books for Kids) is a non-profit organization which collects and distributes used children’s books to underserved kids in the United States.

ReBooK promotes youth literacy and social and emotional development by recycling gently-used children’s books for distribution to literature-poor areas of the United States. Books are collected primarily from book drives hosted at schools. These donated books are then sorted and distributed to various underserved children who need literature enrichment.

This project is unique because through a community effort a variety of quality books are provided in good condition to underserved children for less than twelve cents per book.
