International Children's Digital Library

Do you know about the International Children's Digital Library?

We are a library that provides free access to children's books from around the world. By ensuring access to books from many cultures and in diverse languages, we foster a love of reading, a readiness to learn, and a response to the challenges of world illiteracy.

The International Children's Digital Library is the result of a University of Maryland research project funded primarily by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS), and Microsoft Research to create the world's most comprehensive multicultural digital library of outstanding children's books. Today, the Library is managed by the International Children's Digital Library Foundation, a non profit corporation.
