THE FREE BOOK BUGGIE is still providing much needed children's books across the Twin Cities. Like other non profits, we have had to rethink & reorganize how this gets done, all while keeping everyone safe. We have 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)
"We mobilize free books to children of all ages to engage families and communities in cultivating minds". We value our children and families and strive to help nourish the the growth of all communities by closing the literacy gap. By offering books and promoting the love of reading, each child is empowered to realize a world full of opportunities. Our aim is to provide free books to as many children as possible.
The Free Book Buggie is a non profit that is passionate about books and sharing the love of reading with all children. Our goal is to cultivate literacy and show children that reading is fun, allows them to dream, learn, go on adventures, and be empowered to shape their future.
