The Brooklyn Book Bodega is a nonprofit increasing the number of 100+ book homes for kids 0-18 in NYC. Research shows that households with 100+ books boost life outcomes for children and adolescents. Brooklyn Book Bodega believes that all children should be part of a vibrant, literate community and grow up in homes with access to books that they want to read regardless of financial status.
Brooklyn Book Bodega provides access to and ownership of books, builds community, and creates a passion for learning through free events and literacy-based community programming. Since 2018, Brooklyn Book Bodega has distributed over 218,000 books to more than 58,000 people.
We proudly support Brooklyn Book Bodega and their work to make sure that all kids have access to books that they want to read. By buying a book through us, you support a local independent bookshop AND give a child the gift of reading.
