Does your organization need reading volunteers or books in order to better serve underprivileged Nashville children?


Books for Nashville Kids, a program of Book’em, is here to help. Nonprofit agencies and schools in Davidson County can request books in order to distribute directly to children.

Before making a request, please keep the following in mind:

– All books must go directly into the hands of economically disadvantaged children.

– Book’em cannot fill requests for specific book titles.

– Requests must be received a minimum of 10 business days before books are needed.

– Requests are filled on a first-received, first-filled basis and are subject to availability.

– Please request one book per child.
