"Rec on the GO!" kids excited about their books!

THE FREE BOOK BUGGIE is still providing much needed children's books across the Twin Cities. Like other non

partnered with many of the restaurants & school districts that are providing free meals to kids & their families.
TFBB has provided thousands of books to these locations for kids & parents to choose and have in their homes.
We hope that by providing these free books, kids will stay busy and they will keep reading and learning.

Our volunteers: (Following ALL social distancing guidelines)

  • Sort donated books
  • Bag books for distribution
  • Pick up &/or deliver books to various locations
  • Identify organizations that need books
  • Attend various events to distribute books
