Volunteer with Book'em

January 2021 Update: We deeply appreciate the community's desire to volunteer during this time, but for the time being, we are no longer able to offer individual volunteering opportunities. In the next few months we may need volunteers' help with transporting large loads of books or processing books at home. If you are interested in these types of volunteer opportunities, please complete a volunteer application and we will contact you if the need arises. In the future, please check our volunteer signup calendar for available opportunities. Stay up to date with the latest information by checking back here and following us on our social media platforms.

Our volunteers are our most valuable resource. Book’em has more than 300 volunteers who serve as reading role models in local elementary schools through the Nashville chapter of Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) and in early learning centers through our Ready for Reading program. Other volunteers help prepare books for distribution through our Books for Nashville's Kids program, help out in the office, and assist 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! If you are interested in serving as a reading role model volunteer, please complete our Volunteer Application or email jocelyn@bookem-kids.org to learn more. If you are interested in processing book donations, filling book requests, delivering books, or volunteering in other ways, please complete our Volunteer Application. For group volunteer opportunities, please email Jocelyn at jocelyn@bookem-kids.org.
