Children's Literature for Children, Inc. (CLC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to getting books to children. CLC has served disadvantaged children at home and abroad for four decades by holding book drives, starting library collections, building libraries, and teaching children to read and create a love for books. CLC founder, Kemie Nix, began taking books to Atlanta inner-city schools in 1972 and shortly thereafter took book collections abroad. Since that time CLC has placed over 2 million books in disadvantaged schools and in hospitals around the globe. We know reading is the secret to success. We know one book may change a child forever. Come read with us!


"The more you read, the smarter you will be." Founder, Kemie Nix
