Reading a Book


On a national average 1 book is available for every 300 children in low-income communities as compared to an average of 12 books in the homes of their more affluent peers.


Access to books shouldn’t require a sacrifice on food, rent money or medical necessities. Help us close the gap of student literacy one book at a time. 

All donations are tax deductible, and any amount helps.

Childhood illiteracy is an everyone, everywhere problem. This is especially the case in New Mexico, where 66% of students do not read proficiently. The biggest barrier to literacy in Santa Fe is access to books. 

Our volunteers help us build first-time home libraries and expose students and their families to a world of possibilities and options.
