WNDB in the Classroom provides free diverse books to low-income schools around the country. This program was created to address the literacy gap that affects marginalized youth. By helping children find stories and authors that they can relate to, we can help foster in them a lifelong love of reading.
So far, WNDB in the Classroom has donated over 70,000 books across 49 states and the District of Columbia. Every fall we donate 4,000 copies of our most recent Walter Award winners, and throughout the year we arrange giveaways of diverse books provided to us by publishers, corporations, and individual donors.
If you are a publisher or author interested in donating books or funds for an upcoming giveaway, please complete our interest form below.
For updates on our giveaways, please follow us on social media or subscribe to our newsletter.

As part of WNDB in the Classroom program, WNDB asks that recipients send in photos of the books received, in use in the classroom, as part of displays, with teachers and students. We will use these photos on our social media channels and website to spread the word about the WNDB in the Classroom initiative. Many schools already have release forms as part of your school's policy, but below is WNDB's photo release form if students under 18 are in the images.
