Open Books, a nonprofit based in Chicago, provides literacy experiences for tens of thousands of readers each year through inspiring programs and the sale of donated books. Through their Book Grants, they provide readers of all ages with engaging, appropriate, and high-quality books. Each week, they deliver thousands of books to schools and nonprofits across Chicagoland. Open Books has recently partnered with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to present Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, Chicago. The Open Books Imagination Library program will provide every child between 0-5 in Chicago with access to free, age-appropriate books directly to their homes. The books arrive by mail every month from birth until the child turns 5. Each book is brand new and carefully selected by a panel of experts on childhood literacy and early education.
Open Books is a generous donor that has agreed to match all DRI gifts for this fundraising competition up to $20,000!
