The Pilcrow Foundation was founded in 2013 to continue the work of The Libri Foundation. Our mission is to provide new, quality, hardcover children's books to rural public libraries across the United States.
Eligibility: Independent rural public libraries, Native American Tribal libraries, and libraries that are part of a county, regional, or cooperative system. A branch library may apply if it serves a rural community.
