What We Do

The Free Book Buggie travels around the Twin Cities providing free books to children ages birth to teenagers. Our collection of books provides something for children of all ages and cultural backgrounds. We work with local partners and programs to ensure that family focused agencies are able to provide books for their children on behalf of the Free Book Buggie. Check out some of the services we provide below!

  • Contribute books to Little Free Libraries
  • Engage in community events with other family focused organizations
  • Supply books to local laundromats in the Twin Cities area
  • Donate oodles of books to local community-based organizations and agencies
  • Provide reading Buggie buddies to schools and organizations on request

In September of 2019, we partnered with a few local laundromats in the Twin Cities to provide free books to children who otherwise might not have access at home. Owner of Metro Coin Laundry, Deb Machacek said,

“My husband and I are thrilled to be partnered with The Book Buggie! Three of our five laundromats have a play room area for young people but all five stores have a shelf with books from The Book Buggie. Promoting literacy is so very important and we love having books available for all our customers young and old! Having the books available is great but allowing our customers to take a book they find interesting home with them is the icing on the cake! Because these books are donated by various means, we provide them for our customers to enjoy while at the store or continue reading once they return home. Our customers love having something for the kids to do while using the laundromat but we find adult customers reading them too! Great way to pass the time! Thank you Book Buggie for providing books to our stores and we look forward to filling our boxes soon to continue getting books into everyone’s hands!”
