Our Mission

50,678 books and counting!

Rx for Reading is a non-profit literacy initiative sponsored by the University of Detroit Mercy.  Our mission is to expand access to high-quality children’s books and support families in reading with their children.  Since 2014 we have distributed over 2,000 children’s books a month with the help of our community partners, including low-income health, dental and WIC clinics, homeless shelters, and Head Start programs.


Our 2016-2017 fundraising campaign is now underway.  Please consider Making a Donation to help support our work!
