Kids helping kids with book drivesCreating Readers & Leaders

BookEnds, a nonprofit organization based in Southern California, is about Kids Helping Kids. BookEnds recycles children's books through student-run book drives and places them in schools and youth organizations in need of books.

BookEnds believes that a literate child is the foundation of a thriving community. By providing access to books, BookEnds gives children the resources to develop literacy skills and to experience the joy and imagination of reading.
