Inspire Imagination With The Gift Of Books

In Colorado, 26% percent of children are not reading at a third grade level. Giving the gift of books to a child aged 0-5, increases the chance of high school graduation.  Success starts with books! 

A child learns to read until third grade. After that, a child reads to learn. 

We believe each child deserves to get started on the right page.  That is why we want to provide a free book every month for children under the age of 5 living in Denver. The gift of 12 books a year costs just $30 per year.

"I grew up next to a library, and spent countless hours there reading history books. I want children to have the same access and as much fun as I did. " - Quan N, donor on why he supports ILD

Founding Sponsor:


A donation of just $26 can fund books for one child for a whole year.
