Children’s Home Library Program Provides Books to Low-Income Families

A new program to give children in low-income families their own private collection of books they may not otherwise be able to afford is being offered by local author and philanthropist Nahjee Grant.

The Children’s Home Library Program provides home libraries to K-2nd grade students in under-served communities across Philadelphia. The Children’s Home Library Program is made possible by individual donors and partner organizations.

When you sponsor a Home Library, your contribution will be used to place libraries in the homes of children who otherwise do not have a personal collection of books. Each home library comes with a collection of new childrens books and the sponsors name on it.

Program Details:

  • Grades of students served: K-2nd
  • Areas served: Low-income neighborhoods all across Philadelphia
  • Cost of participation: $6 for one library
  • Our goal this season is 270 libraries
  • 50 libraries would be $300.
