Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank Defers Over 141 Tons of Books from Shredding!

This week’s blog post is dedicated to one of our fantastic non-profit partners who has recently broken a book-saving record. Discover Books first started working with the Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank in November of 2015. The partnership allows Discover Books to work hand in hand with the Book Bank to donate hundreds of thousands of free children’s books to the Cleveland area and keep the books in the hands of happy readers instead of having them end up in recycling bins or the landfill!! YAY!

Since 2013 children throughout Cleveland neighborhoods have enjoyed taking books from 60 Little Free Libraries that the Kids’ Book Bank installed and supports. The books fly out of the Little Free Libraries so the children needed an endless supply of books.

In our first 13 months as partners with them, the Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank has distributed 466,475 amazing children’s books through more than 350 partner organizations and their Little Free Libraries!! This is truly groundbreaking.

The most recent post from our fabulous partner boasts a record-breaking 141 TONS of books that have had a chance to go to a happy new home instead of a recycling bin or landfill….Talk about Letting The Stories Live On! Sheesh!!

We couldn’t be happier to continue working with them to keep fueling their missing and keeping the stories alive! Way to go Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank!! Here are some photos to show you the absolute magic that they are making happen in Cleveland.
