ONE BOOK
AT A Time

Our MISSION

Hundreds of children in Santa Fe’s public schools live below the poverty level or in single parent homes. Some are homeless. The majority are on a free meal program of some kind. Not surprisingly, these children have limited access to books and reading opportunities outside of school. BOOKKIDS exists to ensure that students receive free books throughout the school year so they can begin to create their at home library and practice their reading skills.

Ways you
can help us
How it all started

BOOKKIDS was founded in 2017 as part of Communities In Schools before becoming its own organization in 2018, the intention of the organization is to combat the shortfall of early literacy proficiency by reaching the most vulnerable children in Santa Fe and encouraging them to read free books of their own choosing. In our first year BOOKKIDS distributed 2,400 books to over 300 children in Santa Fe. We have provided over 30,000 books since we began. With your help we will continue to grow and surpass our goal year after year.
