Next Chapter

Formerly called the Adopt-A-Book Literacy Program, Next Chapter provides young people between the ages 0-17 with free new or gently used books to encourage creativity while promoting mental, emotional, and psychological development.


We distribute books year-around at public community events in the South & South East Los Angeles area. This program was established to address Word Gap which adversely affects communities of color. 

Story Time


Story Time is our online series which features weekly book readings on Instagram TV during the month of May 2020. Story Time will conclude by distributing 100 new copies of Press Here by Herve Tullet in the City of Lynwood and City of Maywood on Tuesday, June 9, 2020. 

Founded in 2018, Budding Artists serves the Los Angeles County community by providing under-resourced preschool children with transformative process-focused art experiences.
