Bring your own gently-used children’s books
Book Crawlers are invited to donate their own (very) gently-used children’s books for preK-5th grade readers to add to our donation bins.

What is Promising Pages?
All children need books in their homes in order to grow academically, but there are an estimated 60,000 children in the Charlotte area living in a book desert. Home libraries are often seen as a luxury for under-resourced children and families in our community. Promising Pages collects new and donated books and distributes them to students and organizations, with the goal of eliminating the book desert and providing a free resource to those that need it most.
