We're pleased to announce that our November grant has been awarded to Bronx Bound Books, a mobile bookstore serving the Bronx. Grantee Latanya DeVaughn writes:
Bronx Bound Books is a bookstore on wheels. We value book ownership. The Bronx has only two brick and mortar bookstores for the entire borough. Instead of complaining about it I decided to convert a bus into a bookstore. Bronx Bound Books is the bookstore that comes to you. We travels to schools, shelters, churches, farmers markets and every where in between. We make book buying affordable and accessible to everyone corner of The Bronx and beyond.
Earlier this year, Bronx Bound Books acquired a second bus to be able to bring their bookstore to even more communities.
Would you like to help out? You can do your holiday shopping through their Bookshop page. Or perhaps you'd like to rent the bus for your own Book Fair.
Follow Bronx Bound Books on Instagram and help spread the word.
