Empowering People with Disabilities

Around the world, people with disabilities like dyslexia and blindness cannot get books for school, work, or leisure. Globally, ninety five percent of books are not in formats they can read. And in some parts of the world, availability can be as little as one percent.

Bookshare is a nonprofit that opens up the world of books. We empower people with disabilities with the world’s largest library of ebooks in formats like audio, braille, and large font and make reading easier. In so doing, we create more opportunities for people with disabilities to learn, work, and build sustainable livelihoods.


Help Bookshare Do More

Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to help Bookshare do more. With your generosity, we can add more books to this valuable library and support readers with disabilities like dyslexia, blindness, and cerebral palsy in the U.S. and 70 other countries.

Thank you for supporting Bookshare and empowering people with reading barriers.
