Bright Star Books       

Why We Do It

The latest developmental research indicates that access to books is one of the strongest predictors of future educational attainment.  Limited-resource children living in book deserts do not have regular access to books - a disparity we are trying to change.

Who We Are

We build children's libraries throughout Greater Akron in an effort to increase access to books for limited-resource children. We also distribute new and like-new books to grow home libraries to facilitate book ownership and promote a culture of reading from a young age.

What We Do

Bright Star Books is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on increasing ownership of and access to books for limited-resource children in the Greater Akron region.
