“Keep reading. It's one of the most marvelous adventures that anyone can have.”
- Lloyd Alexander
The Children’s Book Bank was founded by a small group of dedicated individuals who saw the importance of ensuring that all children have access to books. Since 2008, the Book Bank has grown and reached more families as a result of the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations who have donated funds, books and their time.
The Children’s Book Bank is grateful to Jocelyn Barford, Kim Beatty, Willa Black, Joanne Browne, Jane Crist, Nancy Evans, Janet MacPhail, Kathy Martin, Janet Newlands, Diane Rhind, Nora Spence, and Louise Sugar and acknowledges the advice and support of Carol McCabe and Nora Spence, founders of the Bookshare Program.
"One thing that I like about the Book Bank is that when I was in grade 6 I did not like books or even like to read but now I love it. I think I love it so much because they have more books for you to choose from and they help you in the Book Bank to find the book that is just right for you. Thank you so much for everything."
