The East Bay Children's Book Project is a non-profit group that assists literacy efforts by distributing books to children who do not have access to enough books. They have distributed more than 800,000 books since 2005.[2][3] Books donated by the East Bay Children's Book Project have been used in schools, day-care centers, community centers, homeless shelters, and hospitals. The East Bay Children's Book Project is located in Oakland, California.

History[edit]

The East Bay Children's Book Project opened in 2005 as a small non-profit group, hoping to give away 1000 books which had been culled from the libraries of a group of retired teachers. The organization grew so quickly that they are now giving away more than 100,000 books a year. In 2009, they became a 501(c)(3) non-profit group.[4]
