We here at ULU say that every child has a right to storytime.

There are kids who came to this country unaccompanied and are now being held in centers across America. Every time we see these stories we feel powerless, without hope, as if our nation has abandoned us and we are watching it fade away into the mist.


Urban Librarians Unite is partnering with an excellent children’s services agency that is housing and helping unaccompanied minors.This community of about 100 kids under the age of 17 deserve to have books for education and entertainment. You can literally put books into their hands.

Go to our wishlist on Amazon and make a difference for these kids today.

Can’t send books or want to do more?
If you want to help out more we would love your financial support. We are working with First Books and other vendors to ensure that we get the best value for the support you give. You can donate directly to our book drive via PayPal. (please add a note to your donation to tell us to allocate it here).

We believe that when times are tough you go with what you know. We know the joy and comfort that books can offer. You can do your part to give them some of that comfort.
