About us

Open Books is a nonprofit social venture that provides literacy experiences for tens of thousands of readers each year through inspiring programs and the creative capitalization of books.  Through our instructional programs, we cultivate the literacy skills of thousands of children and youth each year, from those who need intervention to those who desire enrichment.  Through our book programs, we provide readers of all ages with engaging, appropriate, and high-quality books. Each week, we deliver thousands of books to schools and nonprofits across Chicagoland.  Funding for our work comes in part from the sale of donated books at our award-winning Pilsen and West Loop stores and in part from traditional fundraising and special events.
