We believe in community involvement.
Grassroots Books is on a mission to increase literacy, empathy, competence, and confidence by making sure that all kids within 50 miles have a home library of 50 books they like.
According to a study led by Mariah Evans, UNR associate professor: home libraries help kids succeed.
In 2015, Grassroots Books gave 12,000 free picture books directly to kids and families and 100,000+ books to teachers, nonprofits, and other good causes following warehouse sales.
Here are community resources that help the ongoing mission of improving literacy. Think we should add something? Please let us know.

We pay cash for books, movies, music, and video games. In lieu of receiving cash, you may opt to have the cash value donated to one of our partner charities.
