We Give Books is a free website that enables anyone with access to the internet to put books in the hands of children who don't have them, simply by reading online. Share the power and pleasure of reading and tech children about helping others at the same time. Each time you read a book online, you help give a brand-new book to a child in need. Books can be read in either English or Spanish.(Link to the flyer)
