Who We Are

Texas Kids Read is a registered 509(a)2 non-profit organization based in Austin providing free books to students in Title I schools in the Austin Independent School District. We have been operating since 2011, and have distributed over 20,000 books to local children. TKR and its members are dedicated to empowering children through literacy. Our hope is to engender a love of reading from an early age that will encourage kids to pursue education beyond the classroom. With the coordinated efforts of teachers, parents, and volunteers, we are fostering the next generation of leaders and strengthening our community. One book at a time.
