Open Books

Open Books

We could describe Open Books as a used bookshop, but it’s so much more than that. This nonprofit uses proceeds from donated books and its retail store to fund litearcy programs for kids throughout Chicago. Volunteers run the joint, and it’s stocked with tomes for everyone from toddlers to travel junkies.
