BookSmiles, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (EIN 82-3233733) , promotes literacy and the joy of reading by giving books to children throughout Philadelphia and New Jersey.  We provide students and younger siblings with high-quality new or gently used books, laying the groundwork for academic success.  Educators – especially those representing Title I schools – receive books for classroom libraries, for students to keep at home and for pop-up book fairs.  We “irrigate book deserts”!
