Donated books go to the Success By 6 Book Bank in the Spokane Valley, run by Kiwanis Club volunteers. The role of the book bank is to provide a book to any child from birth to age 6; to distribute information to parents about the importance of reading to young children and provide suggestions for reading together; and to circulate existing books in the community.

 Any agency, group, organization or business can fill out an application and distribute books to children on behalf of the Success By 6 Children's Book Bank. The only requirement is the books must be distributed to children age birth through six in Spokane County.
