A life of opportunity begins with a love of reading

Who We Are

All children need books in their homes in order to grow academically, but there are an estimated 60,000 children in the Charlotte area living in a book desert. Home libraries are often seen as a luxury for under-resourced children and families in our community. Promising Pages collects new and donated books and distributes them to students and organizations, with the goal of eliminating the book desert and providing a free resource to those that need it most.

Ways to Give

Funds

Our operating costs are small, but our community’s needs are huge. The more donations we receive the more children we can help.

Books

Whether you have a few gently used books your family has outgrown or you want to start a book drive, donating is easy and much appreciated.

Time

Our work takes many hands, and we couldn’t do it without our selfless volunteers. Explore the many different ways you can donate your time.

Literacy in Charlotte, NC

Unite for Literacy used data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) to identify a “book desert” within Mecklenburg County. Areas in red indicate homes in which children have few, if any, books. Research shows the most successful way to improve the reading achievement of low-income children is to increase their access to print.
