Book'em is a non-profit organization that brings free books to kids in Nashville, TN. Our mission is to create a more literate Nashville and ignite children's passion for reading through book ownership and enthusiastic volunteers. We serve disadvantaged youth ages 0-18 through three main programs: Books For Nashville's Kids, Reading is Fundamental (RIF), and Ready For Reading. We are the largest not-for-profit provider of free books for children of all ages in Nashville, and like our city, we are rapidly growing to meet the increasing need.
In 2018, Book’em distributed just over 100,000 books, and provided 230 reading role models in seventeen Title I elementary schools and two Early Learning Centers.
A donation of $10 will provide 5 children with a brand-new book to call their own.
$10 = books for 5 children
$20 = books for 10 children
$50 = books for 25 children
$100 = books for 50 children
A donation of $500 will provide books for an entire classroom for the 2019-20 school year through our RIF program.
Sharing this page with 5 friends will get us one step closer to our goal of raising $6,000 in one month. We cannot do this work without supporters like you!
We believe in a future where all children in Nashville own books and know first-hand the joy and value of reading. Will you help us turn this dream into a reality?
