Book Trust’s mission is to help elementary school children with little or no access to books fall in love with reading and become lifelong learners. With Book Trust, students learn the power of choice and pride of ownership, motivating them to succeed. Book Trust believes that when children have access to books we create a world in which literacy removes barriers and provides children the tools to navigate life successfully, bridging the opportunity gap. In the 2018-2019 school year, Book Trust is poised to provide 1 million+ books to 57,000 underserved students. We collaborate with Scholastic Publishing, School Districts, and School Teachers to deliver our program in 22 states across the country.
