Rita Wiltz, Founder and Executive Director of CBOW, established the mobile non-profit organization in 2004 to bring reading to children in all areas where they live that may not have access to books. Seventy five percent of the population served by CBOW are at or below the poverty level. Wiltz and her team are mobile and travel to community events, churches, businesses, and other non-profits in north, south, east and west counties. The after-school site for the YMCA is hosted by CBOW along with Summer Reading Projects to donate books to children and their families at no cost. Each year over 5,000 books are distributed. 

The mission of Children’s Books On Wheels is to promote literacy by providing books and educational literature to Pre-K through 12 grade children and their families. Learn more about Children’s Books on Wheels by visiting their website or contact Rita Wiltz at 281-844-7596.
