BookNooks are book shelves that are located in family-friendly places in Lowell, delivering free new and gently used books directly to kids in our community.

Reading is a fun way to foster a life-long love of reading and learning in kids- when kids read for fun, they become stronger readers and students. Studies have shown that the number of books in a child's home directly predicts reading achievement, and long-term academic success. Yet, the average number of books in a low-income family's home is 0.

We invite you to partner with us to bring more books to kids in Lowell:  A $50 donation will provide a book for 18 children. Click here to bring books to kids in Lowell:
