THE ORGANIZATION

Book Trust is a national early literacy 501(c)3 organization founded twenty years ago with the mission to engage every child in book choice and ownership, cultivating literacy-rich communities.

Book Trust acts as an equity game changer, bridging the opportunity gap in order for students to choose books of interest and become life-long learners.
