Being in the education and library field for 16 years it was great to see the work that Books For Kids is doing in the many communities they work in. Restoring and upgrading libraries is their main goal and my company DEMCO is happy to work with them. The staff is extremely professional and dedicated to the growth of libraries and the way they affect children..They are a great organization.

We became involved with Books for Kids Foundation within the last year. They are constantly doing everything possible to change childrens' futures. The centers that they work with have a scarcity of books at their sites and none of them have a library. Books for Kids helps transform a small room into a magical place of learning.
