Thank you for signing up to be a Book Buddy!


We are thrilled that you have chosen to be a part of Chicago Reads!

In the next few days, you’ll receive an email from our team, connecting you directly to students. You’ll learn more about their interests, and we’ll send you a letter that they wrote just for you! You can then start shopping—choosing a book or books valued between $15 and $20.

We’ll also send you all the info you need to deliver the books to the students’ schools.

For now, please accept our gratitude for spreading a love of reading this year. We are so grateful for you—and excited to launch this program with you!

If you have any questions, please reach out to our team at
