Since 2005, Biblio has donated over $1 million to fund literacy and educational projects that benefit children in impoverished communities of South America. Through BiblioWorks, a 501(c)3 non-profit, we have built 12 community libraries, trained hundreds of teachers and librarians and changed the lives of tens of thousands of underprivileged children.
Every time you purchase a book on Biblio, you are supporting our mission of improving literacy and education at home and abroad. And, if you want to give a little more, be sure to choose to "Round up for Reading" when making your purchase, which will allow you to round up your purchase by a small amount - all of which will go directly to BiblioWorks.
