Family Book Request Form

This form is for families in Connecticut to request free books for their children. We do not provide books out of state.

We no longer mail books to families living in 34 communities in Connecticut. These are either communities that host at least one Book Place or communities adjacent to hosting municipalities.

Book Places provide easy access to free children’s books to take home. On our Find Your Book Place page, you can search for the Book Place nearest you or download a complete listing by county and community — with details on each site — in English or in Spanish.

Read to Grow will continue free mailings to families in communities not among the 33 listed below. The communities listed in blue are those with at least one Book Place. The communities listed in black are adjacent to communities hosting Book Places.
