Many students have never had the opportunity to attend a book fair or even own a book. We supplied books for a book fair in Inglewood, CA. More than 400 students at that school were each able to select three books for summer reading. You don't need to wait for the next book fair to help. We are constantly donating books to schools in underserved areas,

Literacy and education equity are especially relevant during the pandemic when school closures and statewide shelter-in-place orders limit students' access to books. Our vision is to provide books to children in underserved communities and facilitate opportunities for volunteers to actively engage in social change while remaining safe. We started Bookworm Global as a way to serve others during the pandemic but we hope the impact can be much greater.
There is an immediate need for phsyical books to promote literacy and prevent educational backsliding. We have recycled over 65,000 books since Spring 2020! Recycling books helps (1) improve literacy rates, (2) impact education equity, (3) and is good for the environment. Help us make an even bigger impact. We could not do this without volunteers or partnerships. We have worked with numerous service organizations, schools and clubs.
