Library For All exists to unlock knowledge to the developing world. Our mission is to provide tools for individuals to learn, dream and aspire to lift themselves out of poverty. To reach those who have little or no access to books, we are building a digital library and educational platform, designed for low bandwidth environments.
The Library will be stocked with millions of ebooks, course material and resources from publishers and Open Educational Resources. The Library For All platform will be accessible on any device, including feature phones found across the developing world, and will be optimized for low-cost tablets.

“The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it.”
“Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement”
“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”
“There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world, Love of books is the best of all.”
