Donate to the 
Brooklyn Book Bodega!
 


We are helping the Brooklyn Book Bodega raise money to purchase more books and supplies to be donated to local families in need. 

Click above to donate directly through their website or click on the icon below to add a donation to your order!
 

The Brooklyn Book Bodega's mission is to increase the number of 100+ book homes for kids 0-18 in NYC by providing free access to and ownership of books, building community, and creating a passion for learning through free events and literacy-based community programming.

They are temporarily shifting their model to partner with community organizations to ensure that kids and families receive books in addition to food and hygiene items. They are collaborating with educators, schools, community organizations, and food pantries to make sure that families have access to books, especially during mandated “NYS Pause.” 

Families living with a fixed or low income do not have excess cash to purchase books for their children and, given the segregation in our city and country, may live in a book desert. While the pandemic impacts all of us, it does not impact all of us equally. In addition to having enough to feed their bellies, all children deserve to have access to books which will feed their minds and provide additional learning support.

It is crucial for children to have books at home while they adjust to the new normal of remote learning, time away from friends and loved ones, general disruption to their routine, and potential loss and hardship.

The Brooklyn Book Bodega is currently accepting donations of gently used children's books. They are especially in need of books for babies, kids, and teens with protagonists of diverse representation. See here for more details
