About DIBS for Kids

Delivering Infinite Book Shelves (DIBS) for Kids is a technology-based literacy nonprofit that helps teachers address the fact that too many kids leave school every day without a book to read at home. DIBS supports schools to address this problem in two ways: (1) helping to fundraise for little classroom-based libraries filled with leveled take-home books, and (2) developing a QR-code based inventory technology that is fun for students and easy for teachers. Since 2011, DIBS has sent home over 350,000 books within ten of Omaha’s highest-poverty schools. DIBS is headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska with school pilots in Kansas City, MO and Kentwood, MI.
