Books for Teens' mission is to empower the nation’s at-risk teens to achieve more by providing them with free high quality, new, age-appropriate books.

Books for Teens seeks to raise funds to help teens have a brighter future. Funds raised through Books for Teens will be distributed to libraries in communities with a high level of poverty, where teen services librarians will purchase and distribute new books, encourage teens to get library cards and provide teens with reading-focused events and activities.

1. The biggest factor in determining the level of education a young person attains is the number of books in the home.

2. Multiple studies have shown that thousands of families in poverty-stricken parts of the country have few or no books in the home

3. As an age group, teens receive the least financial support from government, philanthropic and non-profit agencies
