About Us


Our Team

Our team is a dedicated network of teachers, bibliophiles, and community members who all have one common goal; to put books within reach of the children of Galveston.  We are all lead by a strong desire to make a difference on the island one book at a time.  


Our History

As a teacher in our community, I see first hand every day the effects of a lack of books within reach. After being empowered by a book drive I was motivated to find a way to put books within reach of all students in Galveston, TX and beyond.  


Our Mission

Our mission is to make books more accessible to the children of Galveston Island and by providing bookcases filled with new and gently used books to apartment complexes on the island.


Thanks to my partnership with The African Children's Haven you are able to make tax deductible donations! They have generously agreed to provide this service until I am set up as a 501c.   You can do a one time or a monthly donation using the link below.  You can also write a check payable to African Children's Haven and write "Books Within Reach" on the Memo Line.  One hundred percent of your donation will go straight to buy books,  bookcases or purchase supplies for community celebrations!
