Mission Statement

Our mission is to grow and sustain a community of readers, writers, and thinkers in North Central Philadelphia.

Description

Tree House Books is a non-profit organization on a mission: grow and sustain a community of readers, writers, and thinkers in North Central Philadelphia. Packed with books and homemade art, Tree House is an after-school meeting spot for local children to explore learning in fun, creative ways that encourage a lifelong relationship with education, reading, and each other. Plus, in the process, our kids get to know their own creative potential, the value of their creations, and that they all have a place as members in the community. We offer homework help, publish our own magazine, and host a variety of community events. The Tree House atmosphere is warm and welcoming, brimming with kid-driven energy and creative ideas in constant supply. We hope to extend our branches from Susquehanna Avenue to all of our neighbors throughout North Central Philadelphia. Tree House emphasizes and embodies the strength we have as members of a community. We encourage the kids to look up and greet neighbors while walking, read stories aloud, garden together, ask for help when they need it, help others when they need it, and work to change what they want to be different.
