Books-A-Go Go is a 501c nonprofit organization that collects used and new children’s books and gives them to children from low-income families. These books are distributed through schools and organizations that support these children.
Since its inception in 2007 by Deercreek residents, Betty Metz & Natalie Jackson, Books-A-Go Go has given out over one million books to needy children in the US and abroad. Books are necessary in the home to improve their literacy, to develop a love for reading and to experience the world through books.
Books-A-Go Go is run by volunteers, so 100% of all donations are used for the purchase of books and their distribution. Thousands of books are given out each month during the school year. Books are given to The Bag Ladies to put in bags going to children in homeless shelters, and Mandarin Food Bank, Families of Slain Children, and pediatric hospice children have received free books from Books-A-Go Go.
