One book can lead to infinite possibilities.

We believe in the transformational power of reading—the simple pleasure of stumbling into a whole new world of characters, ideas, and places, be they real or imagined. That’s why we work to get books into the hands of children in our hometown of Norwalk, Connecticut. We hope you’ll join us by donating or volunteering your time.


Giving Away Books

Every year, we hold several events at Norwalk public libraries and schools. We give young people a book of their own that they can take home and keep. We are always looking for donations of appropriate and relevant books for pre-k, kindergarten, elementary, and middle school students that are either lightly used or new. They can be paperback or hardback. As a 501c3 sponsored by the Norwalk Public Library we also appreciate financial donations.

If you’d like to give a book or two (or more!), you can either purchase books online and have them sent to us, or you can bring new or used books to:

Norwalk Reads - Norwalk Public Library
One Belden Ave.
Norwalk, CT 06850
