The Birthday Books Project


 The Birthday Books Projects brings the gift of reading to students whose families have limited income. 

We currently provide free birthday gift bags of children's books to over 2,500 students at five Maryland elementary schools.  Each child is celebrated, while the precious lifetime gift of literacy is encouraged. 

Starting a Birthday Books Project at a school in your community is surprisingly easy and affordable.  

If you're interested in considering one, please contact us and we'll gladly (and at no cost) walk you through the basics.

Then we'll cheer you on as you spread the joy of books and learning to children in need.

Give the gift of reading

For every $10.00 you can give, we can provide 15 children in need with the birthday gift of a new, high-quality children's book of their choice!  That's because we partner with First Book, paying only for shipping, and use community volunteers to  coordinate our giving program.
