Through the generosity of partners and supporters such as Disney, Blue Star Families donates books to military children, base libraries, Department of Defense schools, and military-impacted public schools and libraries across the world.

Since its launch in 2009, Blue Star Families has distributed hundreds of thousands of books and impacted over 560,000 military children worldwide. We work with military-impacted schools and libraries across the country, providing books that will provide ongoing support in the effort to promote literacy in America’s children. 

‘It was such a wonderful time. I have two daughters and their dad just deployed 2 weeks before we attended this event and it made my girls so happy. My 3 year old was convinced that her dad sent Mickey Mouse to meet her! And she loved that Mickey was with the American flag, it really brought her Army life & her everyday kid life together. Thank you so much for everything and taking our minds off missing our favorite soldier.’

Blue Star Books on Bases may be coming to a community near you! Check out our Upcoming Events, and join our network to hear about these and more exclusive benefits for military families.
