Watch this video to get a personalized tour of our Gift of Literacy Library Room from volunteer executive director and co-founder, Amy Cervantes, below.

We are very excited to announce that our library room has recently received an extreme makeover! Thanks to a very generous donation and installation services from Office Environments, all of our books are now organized on tall, sturdy, metal shelving units.  Says Office Environments president, Cindy Cox, “We are so happy to be able to help and to know what a great service you provide to children who need our love.”

We also offer a gigantic “thank you” to First Book-Charlotte, Barnes & Noble Morrison Place, and to all those who donated books to make our Gift of Literacy Library a reality. Read more about First Book-Charlotte and Barnes & Noble’s extraordinary efforts here, which resulted in a total donation of 8,350 books!

We’ve had dozens of helping hands and hearts working in the library room to categorize the books and label the shelves. And, because we believe every child deserves the gift of literacy, we include two new books in every child’s birthday gift package and every Blessing Basket we deliver to babies born into homelessness. We also hold quarterly themed birthday celebrations, where each child attending one of our shelter parties receives a brand new book along with his or her party favor bag.

With thousands of homeless children served annually by Birthday Blessings, we aim to keep our books shelves stocked!  If you would like to add to our growing library, new books can be dropped at our offices or at our retail partners’ locations.
