About Us


Made for Me Books wants all young people to have a diverse collection of books at home.  Books that:
  • reflect themselves and encourage reading
  • celebrate multiple cultures and illuminate untold histories
  • are theirs for the keeping - and reading over and over again!
Made for Me Books partners with local Harlem-based groups and organizations to distribute books to students.  The books we provide are a combination of new and used books.

We accept used and new book donations and always welcome cash donations, which help us purchase more new books.

Book donors:  We seek books that meet our criteria - which is to highlight a diversity of cultures, genders, family structures and abilities; especially those that are not traditionally shared.
