The Pilcrow Foundation: Sharing Books with Rural Public Libraries
The Pilcrow Foundation’s mission is to provide new, quality, hardcover children’s books to rural public libraries across the United States.
We recognize that public libraries are often the center of their rural community, where people come together to learn and share ideas. Providing quality children’s books to rural public libraries ensures an opportunity for active engagement within the community and lifelong learning.
The Pilcrow Foundation supports rural public library communities through our Children’s Book Project. We ask libraries, in partnership with the Friends of the Library or other local sponsors, to raise one third of the funds used to purchase the new books which become part of the library’s permanent children’s book collection, thus ensuring children’s access to quality books for years to come.
