The Children’s Book Bank is a charitable organization designed to support children’s literacy by providing free books and literacy support to children in lower income neighbourhoods.
The Children’s Book Bank is located at 350 Berkeley Street in Toronto, and offers a range of gently used and new books secured through donation, school and community book drives. Staffed by volunteers and working within the community, we focus on the literacy needs of children, from infants through to age 12, and work to support their interest in, and success with, reading. In addition to providing books, The Children’s Book Bank offers literacy support and programming.
A visit to The Children’s Book Bank is much like a visit to a familiar and well-loved children’s book store. The space is safe, warm and inviting and creates a wonderful oasis for the children; it is a place where they can relax and experience the magic of books and enjoy reading.
