About Us

Millie's Bookshelf is a designated 501(c)(3) humanitarian literacy nonprofit organization incorporated in San Diego, California. Our mission is to improve access to reading resources in displacement settings in an effort to promote literacy and health education. To bridge the book desert gap, Millie’s installs micro libraries in community spaces and delivers literacy-focused reading programs.

It is our belief that the mind is the greatest resource and our core goal is to help millions of people find #RefugeInReading. We partner with local community organizations looking to procure textbooks, construct micro libraries, and run reading programs in refugee camps around the world. In 2019, Millie’s will conduct its pilot project in Mafraq, Jordan alongside a local nonprofit partner in Za’atari Refugee Camp.
