         BOOKS-A-GO GO!!!
    
  Celebrating 9 years, and 850,000 books distributed!
  


BOOKS-A-GO GO is an international organization that collects used and new children's books and gives them to children from low income families.   These books are distributed through schools and organizations that support these children. 

Kids need books to improve their literacy and develop a love of reading.  BOOKS-A-GO GO has given OVER 850,000 books to children whose families cannot afford to buy them the books they need.  The children love receiving their books, and get so excited, they hug them and can't wait to read them. For many children, it will be the first book in their home. 
                                               

Millions of children throughout our country love books and want to read, but they do not have any books at home.  BOOKS-A-GO GO wants to fix that, and is changing children's lives, one book at a time. 

BOOKS-A-GO GO's goal is to have cities across America, collecting children's books, and giving them to the children in their communities who cannot afford them.  Ask us how YOU can help!
