WHO WE ARE

The Queen City Book Bank (QCBB) is an initiative launched by two of the most active literacy nonprofits in the Cincinnati region, Literacy Network of Greater Cincinnati and Blue Manatee Literacy Project.

The mission statement that drives QCBB is simple and grounded in the need to dramatically improve equality in literacy resourcing:
Provide 10 books per year, every year,
to students who otherwise would not have access.

Our Mission

10 books per year to every K-6 under-resourced student in the Greater Cincinnati region. 

Our Vision

The QCBB vision is to donate 350,000 books annually to the 35,000 K-6 under-resourced students in the Cincinnati area.

Our Focus

Our focus is on giving the right books, to the right kids, at the right time through easy self- selection and quick disbursement.
