The Pilcrow Foundation offers in-kind grants of new children's books to U.S. public libraries and tribal libraries in rural areas. The project is intended to increase access to quality children's books.
The foundation recognizes the importance of public libraries in rural communities. Libraries are often the center of the community, where people come together to learn and share ideas. Providing quality children’s books to rural public libraries ensures an opportunity for active engagement within the community and lifelong learning. Recipients will be able to choose the most appropriate books for their community from a list of more than 500 high-quality hardcover children’s books, including award-winning and star-reviewed titles from educational and literary organizations.
