Non-Profit "Open Books" Promotes Literacy to Chicago Youth
Open Books is a nonprofit social venture that operates an extraordinary bookstore, provides community programs, and mobilizes passionate volunteers to promote literacy in Chicago and beyond.
At the heart of it, Open Books puts books into children's hands that can open minds and someday, open doors. "What is the book that is going to change that child into a reader or someone who understands books and loves them?", asks Open Books Chicago Founder Stacy Ratner. "I think without basic literacy skills your future is seriously limited and that is the change we would like to see in the city and the world."
Watch and learn about Open Books' award-winning social enterprise model which combines book donations, a retail bookstore, e-commerce, and volunteers to help support literacy programs. Reading is awesome; shouldn't everyone get to experience it?
