Help Make Books Accessible to Everyone

Lily loves to read, especially books about horses. She didn’t always like reading though. In fact, Lily disliked it because of her dyslexia. That changed when she started using Bookshare, and her mom, Jessica, tweeted, “A year ago, she hated to read. Today, she finished a twenty-five-page chapter book!”

Bookshare opens up the world of reading to people with print disabilities. Your donations help us to provide our service to people like Lily and people with print disabilities all around the world.
