The Free Book Buggie is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that accepts, sorts, stores and distributes new and pre-loved children's books across the Twin Cites and beyond. We partner with over 90 other organizations to provide age-appropriate books to under-resourced families and communities. We are excited for Spring 2021 and to continue providing books where they are needed most. During the past year we gave away even MORE books than we did the previous year! The need is great and we would love your help in supporting our mission.
Our Mission: To provide books to children and ignite a passion for reading that empowers each child to explore a world of opportunity.
Our Vision: We envision a world where all children have their own home library and become lifelong learners through the joy of reading.
Some of our volunteer opportunities are:
Sort donated books
Bag/Box books for distributing
Pick up &/or deliver books to various locations
Read stories aloud for Facebook (virtually)
Identify new partner organizations
Attend events to assist children in choosing books
Support our mission financially
We hope you will join us in sharing free children's books across Minnesota!
