13-year-old Adele's Literacy Library!

We are excited to hear about the ALL for Books WebStore, created for Adele's Literacy Library, is a non-profit organization founded by 13-year old Adele Taylor. Adele's passion for reading led her to start this organization that aims to donate millions of brand new books and bookmarks to schools, libraries and charitable organizations.

Launched as a joint project between Founder/CEO, Adele Ann Taylor, and a group of business school students from The University of California Irvine, the ALL for Books WebStore lets shoppers purchase books from the "Adele's List of Books to Donate" category and have them shipped directly to Adele's Literacy Library who will put them in the hands of the organizations/groups that need them. Shoppers can also purchase books for themselves or others from the New York Times Best Sellers List, and the proceeds are donated directly to Adele's Literacy Library to help it grow its one simple premise… read and be empowered.

Since December 2008, Adele's Literacy Library has successfully given away hundreds of brand new books and bookmarks to schools, libraries and various organizations. Adele’s goal is to give away millions of books to youth, elderly and disadvantaged individuals regardless of where they live. Ultimately Adele also wants to offer scholarships to high school graduates who want to pursue their educational dreams.
