Our Mission:


Did you know that having more books in your home is linked to future success and better life outcomes? The Brooklyn Book Bodega increases the number of 100+ book homes in Brooklyn. We provide access to books to grow children’s personal libraries across Brooklyn.


Why Books?

Children who do not read on grade-level by the end of third grade are four times less likely to graduate high school on time.

In a research study of 42 countries, the quantity of books in homes was the second most important predictor of reading performance. In fact, having over 100 books at home yielded a reading performance 1.5 years higher than those with fewer books.

Our Events

Join us at one of our free events to stock your child’s personal library, or those of your family, friends and neighbors.  The bodega has a variety of used and new books.  Select the ones you want to read and take them home for FREE!
