Registered Name: The Children's Bookbank and Literacy Foundation

Business Number: 844532952RR0001

The Children’s Book Bank provides free books and literacy support to children living in low-income neighborhoods across Toronto. Since 2008, the Book Bank has operated a beautiful storefront space located in the Regent Park/St. James Town neighborhood which welcomes school and camp groups as well as families and their children to listen to stories, browse our collection, and choose a favorite book to take home to keep.

The Book Bank has expanded its reach and now provides additional books and literacy materials through community centres, schools, and health clinics in low-income neighbourhoods throughout the city.

In 2019, The Children’s Book Bank gave away 135,000 donated books.
