Family Book Request Form

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE MESSAGE:

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 44 communities in Connecticut. These are either communities that host at least one Book Place or communities that border at least 2 other cities or towns with Book Places.

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 44 listed below. We will  mail books to a family 3 times within a 12-month period. Once you have requested 3 times, please visit one of our Book Places located throughout the state. The communities listed in blue are those with at least one Book Place. The communities listed in black border at least 2 communities hosting Book Places.
