Book Wagon SF
We believe in books.
The Book Wagon puts free books into the hands of children. After a pandemic year of closed schools, we are facing an ‘all hands-on deck’ moment. It is up to all of us to respond to this moment by promoting literacy and sharing the excitement and joy of reading with children.
If a child can't read well by the end of third grade odds are that he or she may not catch up. And the effects of falling behind and feeling like a failure can be devastating. Study after study have found that the mere presence of a home library increases children's academic success, vocabulary development, attention and job attainment even more than the educational level of one’s parents.
Parks, Schools, and Neighborhood Organizations
We bring the Book Wagon to neighborhood parks and elementary schools. And we invite community organizations to reach out to us if you want more books, or want to replenish your collection. We will help make sure there is a robust library at your site for the boys and girls. If you're interested in requesting particular books for your Center, please fill out this form and we'll be in contact with you.
