Books Given Away: 52,240
My Own Book is a non-profit organization that gives brand new books to underprivileged children. Our team members visit kindergarten through third grade classrooms where they read books to children, talk about the benefits of the public library, and let each child choose a book to take home. We put a bookplate on the inside cover of each book with the child's name on it, to cement the idea that each book is the child’s very own. We also host special events throughout the year around the country to spread the joy of reading.
