Our Impact

As a local Minnesota nonprofit, our team is dedicated to providing ALL children access to free age-appropriate books to have in their homes.  Since June 2018, and in collaboration with over 300 community groups and organizations, TFBB has distributed over 275,000 books and impacted the lives of thousands of children in the Twin Cities area.

Ramsey County Health Nurse

The Phalen Village Little Free Library Event could not have happened without the wonderful and gracious book donations from The Free Book Buggie. They were able to provide a great idea of handing out a “book bag” containing 3 books to each child that attended the event and also filling 4 Little Free Libraries with books. This left an estimated 200 books in the hands of children that may have not had the chance to own one book. I want to thank them in supporting and collaborating with Mayor Melvin Carters Birth-3 Initiative and St. Paul- Ramsey Co. Public Health.
