Literacy gives people access to information. Literacy plays a significant role in reducing gender, race, nationality, and religious inequality that favors one group over another in access to education, property, employment, health care, legal, and civic participation.

In the spirit of the Little Free Library, Global Samaritan's OPEN BOOK ROOM exists to provide free books, to read, to return, to keep, and to share to anyone in the Big Country.

Each summer, Global Samaritan opens its BOOK ROOM to the public, weekly. Patrons of the Open Book Room come with their families to read, to shop, to return books and to volunteer. In 2021, OVER 6,000 FREE books went home with eager readers who visited the GSR Open Book Room.
