BookRenter Joins Fight Against Youth Illiteracy

Filed under: Company Updates - BookRenter Team

We are excited to announce the launch of BookRenter Gives Back – a program directly aimed at creating future leaders by providing brand new books to little readers. Starting today BookRenter will fund the donation of new, age-appropriate books for children in need with every rental order!

The campaign to improve child literacy isn’t just about us – it’s about you, our customers. A few months ago we sent out a survey asking for feedback around a cause to support. When the results were in, the answer was clear – focus on youth education.

Our global community is faced with many challenges – environmental, economic, medical – and we believe the solution for all starts with literacy and education. So that’s where we’re going to give back – where we believe it counts most.

So please – tell your friends, family, and college-bound pets that when they rent textbooks at BookRenter, they aren’t just saving themselves a ton of money, they are also helping to improve the life of a child. 

BookRenter Gives Back

To kick-start our book drive we’ve partnered with BlogHer to help build awareness around the facts of illiteracy and turn up the volume around the conversation. If you’d like to join the movement and donate to the cause, visit BlogHer and tell your story about the book that has most impacted your life. For every story received during the month of May, BookRenter will donate one book in BlogHer’s name.

    My 6 yr old grandson read Diary of a Wimpy Kid and he loved it. He’s now reading the second one. I love that he enjoys reading. Every child should have access to books.
