About Us


Made for Me Books wants all young people to have a diverse collection of books at home.  Books that:
  • reflect themselves and provide windows into other cultures;
  • illuminate histories and experiences that are not widely shared;
  • are theirs to own - so they can read them over and over again.
We identify titles 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 2075 books to 588 young readers, in partnership with public housing partners and other local, youth serving organizations.
