Organization Description: 

Book’em is a nonprofit 501c3 organization focusing on two core areas: the collection and distribution of books to children and teens in lower-income families who might not otherwise have books of their own; and providing volunteer readers to local preschools and elementary schools. We believe that given an early start, children learn not just to read, but to love reading. What better gift can we give the children of our community than the love of reading?

Book'em works to raise the level of community awareness to the fact that reading is crucial to a child’s early learning and life-long learning. Yearly, Book'em donates an average of 25,000 books to children in Davidson County.
