Books Distributed in 2023


Books Distributed Since 1989

Book’em's mission is to create a more literate Nashville and ignite children’s passion for reading through book ownership and enthusiastic volunteers. We envision a future in Nashville where all children own books and know first-hand the joy and value of reading.

Help us enter our next chapter bringing even MORE kids and books together in 2022! There are lots of ways to support Book'em and our mission:

Give Money: Every $2.50 provides a book to a child in need. Donate through our website, via Venmo (@bookemkidsnash), or by mailing a check to Book'em, 161 Rains Ave. Nashville, TN 37203.

Give Books: Schedule an appointment to drop off new, like-new, or very gently used books in great condition for youth ages 0-18, or send books directly to Book'em through our Amazon wish list.

Give Time: Fill out our volunteer application to get involved with Book'em in the future, whether that's sorting books, reading to kids, or helping out at a special event.
