Dear friends, the time has come for us to close the doors of the Books to Dreams, Inc. program, as of June 30, 2016. It has been a privilege and a most joyful blessing for us. It was an enormously meaningful part of our lives.

We are deeply grateful to the faithful board members, donors, volunteers and the thousands of people who have participated over the almost twenty five years. It was an honor to be connected with all of the organizations, educational programs, shelters and individuals who were grateful and deserving recipients.

My heartfelt gratitude to Howard, who made Books to Dreams, Inc’s success possible. Thank you, Howard, for always believing in me. More than anything, we feel most grateful to have provided this service. Now, we are saying goodbye, we wish you well and ... thanks for the memories!




"Wouldn't it be wonderful if all children could have their own books to read?"
Miriam Stannard Epstein 
Director and Founder 

The Books to Dreams creed is that we "never ask for anything." Every donation has been freely given. We do not solicit or request contributions. This allows us to use most of our effort and energy to get books into the hands of the children. All connections are made through "word of mouth." We are most grateful for the success of this "grass roots" approach. BTD always needs and greatly appreciates monetary donations. more...
