Twice Upon a Time is a volunteer run organization that provides free books for children from birth to twelve years old. Our mission is to support early literacy skills and foster a love of reading by making books available in the home. Children who visit any of our locations can choose a book for themselves to keep for free, each time they visit. Our books are received through donation, and are carefully sorted to ensure that the books we give to children are in new or near-new condition. Twice Upon a Time was founded in 2014 by a diverse group of volunteers who are passionate about early literacy and books.
