THE VISION

Founded with a passion to improve the lives of disadvantaged children by providing inspiring book collections and engaging literacy programs to underfunded schools, libraries, and organizations across the nation, Options For Literacy aspires to empower and embolden every last child through a culture of reading. For many of the children it serves, Options For Literacy represents a crucial link to strong literacy education, and its programs help build and nurture support systems for the development of literate minds. By immersing children in an integrated world of literary experiences that teach them, firsthand, the impact of reading on every aspect of life, imagination is ignited, and confidence is built for a prosperous future, regardless of race, economic status, or personal capabilities.
