Yesterday, was a great giveaway day for bookBgone.  We donated hundreds of books to an early childhood literacy program in Irvington, NJ and an equal number to an after-school literacy program in Orange.  Today the process begins again — we are on the road picking up more books to sort and send out.

bookBgone Helps Texas Students Pay It Forward

We’ve been busy all winter picking up your unwanted books and making sure that they land in the hands of those who otherwise would do without.

Among many others, bookBgone is currently supporting an innovative program initiated by New York State- based Family to Family . This program promotes literacy and also allows young children to give to others.

We sent a shipment of several hundred, early reader and pre-school books to an elementary school in Waco, TX. Fifty students received the packages and chose three each to send to another, younger child. bookBgone also included an assortment of chapter books in the shipment so that the older kids could share in the fun of reading.

The local CBS affiliate covered the project – click here to see your books in the hands of some very enthusiastic, young literacy advocates.
