Volunteer with Book'em


book2Our volunteers are our most valuable resource. Book’em has more than 200 volunteers who serve as reading role models in local elementary schools through our Reading Is Fundamental program and in preschools through our Ready for Reading program. Other volunteers help prepare books for distribution through our Books for Nashville's Kids program, in the office, and with special events.


Research shows that access to books and reading aloud to children greatly increases their ability to learn to read. We need your help to make this possible!
