Mission Statement

Because Everyone Deserves to Read, Watch, Listen and Learn

Description

Books for America is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization headquartered in Washington, D.C.. We distribute donated new and used books of all types; movies; music and instructional cd's; audiobooks; and more to organizations in the local Washington, DC area serving economically, socially, or physically disadvantaged communities and individuals. Recipients include hospitals, inner-city and rural schools, assisted living communities for seniors, adult literacy programs, V.A. hospitals, youth centers, women's shelters, hospices, and other such organizations. We obtain needed items both from donation drives held in communities, and also directly from publishers. Items you wish to donate could also be shipped directly to us.
