What is Book Works?

Literacy is one of the best predictors of a child's future success, but a child without access to books will not have the chance to become an engaged capable reader.

That's where Book Works comes in.  

Book Works is a new program offered by Goodwill Industries of Greater Cleveland and East Central Ohio. Book Works aims to provide new or slightly used books to children and families throughout our community.

Through the generosity of area donors, Goodwill has the supply of children's books. They are distributed to area children through special events and partnerships with area schools and centers.

During select times throughout the year, Book Works will be providing FREE books to area schools and organizations. This interest form must be completed in order for your organization to participate. Once completed, a member of Goodwill will be in contact to schedule book pick up!
