Better World Books works with passionate nonprofit partners to provide better lives and a chance for economic, social and political freedom through literacy. The following three are our major nonprofit literacy partners:

The list doesn't stop there. We also work with the following groups:
The Robinson Community Learning Center
The Robinson Community Learning Center is where it all began for us. Located in South Bend, Indiana, is an education outreach effort created by the University of Notre Dame that was opened in February 2001. They offer after school programs, mentoring, language and computer classes, job training initiatives, and much more.
The Prison Book Program
The Prison Book Program gets books into the hands of prison inmates, who often lack any educational resources. As a grassroots organization operating on a shoestring budget, the organization’s partnership with Better World Books has been essential--providing a stable source of funding.
Ride for Reading
Ride for Reading is a non-profit organization located in Nashville, Tennessee that donates books via bicycle to children from low-income areas. It hosts fund-raising events to promote literacy while also educating children about bicycling.
