Northwest Literacy Foundation - Putting Books in the Hands of Readers
Northwest Literacy Foundation - Seattle, WA
“With books, determination and a great imagination, all things are possible.” – Chris Platt, Author of Willow King

Founded in 1989, The Northwest Literacy Foundation is a volunteer run nonprofit that seeks to strengthen our community by putting books in the hands of young readers.  The NWLF is committed to enhancing youth literacy efforts in the Pacific Northwest by providing literature and resources through partnerships with schools and community organizations.

The NWLF collaborates with schools and organizations throughout the area, serving students with high needs and often lacking a depth of resources.  Through grants of books, we work to “fill the shelves” of local school libraries, provide additional classroom resources, host author visits and purchase books for community organizations engaged in educational programs.

With a rich history of focusing on young readers, collaborating with schools and building effective community partnerships, Northwest Literacy Foundation has provided over 160,000 new books to children, schools and community groups.
