What We Do

DIBS (Deliver Infinite Book Shelves) for Kids is a children's literacy program. Our little classroom libraries and innovative lending technology Deliver Infinite Book Shelves to students so they can read every night. We provide books, a QR-code driven book distribution system, training and support to 12 elementary schools and over 3,000 children and their teachers in Omaha.

Our mission is to help Omaha become the nation’s first large, urban community to ensure every child has access to a great book to take home every night. We hope to build a passion for reading that becomes a path toward achieving third grade reading proficiency.

DIBS for Kids is experiencing significant demand for our program. We need more funding for books and key program materials. Help us start a revolution to Deliver Infinite Book Shelves to even more children in 2019.
