The Libri Foundation is a nationwide non-profit organization which donates new, quality, hardcover children’s books to small, rural public libraries in the United States through its BOOKS FOR CHILDREN program.

Libraries are qualified on an individual basis. In general, county libraries should serve a population under 16,000 and town libraries (school districts may partner with town libraries*) should serve a population under 10,000 (usually under 5,000). Libraries should be in a rural area, have a limited operating budget, and an active children’s department. Please note: Rural is usually considered to be at least 30 miles from a city with a population over 40,000.

The Foundation works with the library’s Friends of the Library or other local organizations because they believe in community involvement and want to encourage and reward local support of libraries. The Friends, or other local sponsors, can contribute from $50 to $350 which the Foundation matches on a 2-to-1 ratio. Thus, a library can receive up to $1,050 worth of new, quality, hardcover children’s books through the Foundation’s BOOKS FOR CHILDREN program.
