Made for Me Books wants all young people to have a diverse collection of books at home.
- reflect themselves and provide windows into other cultures;
- illuminate our true history and experiences that are not widely shared;
- are theirs to own - so they can read them over and over again.
We identify books and authors that highlight a variety of cultures and identities. And we partner with local Harlem-based groups to distribute the books.DONATE NOW
and help us purchase and deliver more books. Made for Me Books is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization, based in Harlem, New York.
Since our founding in June 2020, we have distributed 4,706 books to 1,302 young readers
, in partnership with our public housing partners and other local, youth serving organizations.
