Check them out!  Of your local library!

Or visit your local independent bookstore to purchase books for your home library or as gifts, to be sure the artist and authors who make these wonderful books get their fair share.

In 2017 we are collecting books for an amazing non-profit project who help incarcerated parents record bedtime stories for their children and get these books to the families as well: Aunt Mary’s Storybook.  You can give us new book donations at any storytime and we’ll pass it on.

Open Books also takes donations for its various projects supporting literacy across Chicagoland.
