Bookbug is fueled by a deep appreciation for children’s literature and is inspired by the revolution of The Kalamazoo Promise. We believe in the power of removing economic barriers to education and in the right every child has to celebrate voice and story. We know that placing beautiful, well-matched books into a child’s hands has the potential to alter a life in small and profound ways and are humbled by our task to do this in-person, via our recommended children’s picks each season, on our media feeds, and with our Round Up For Reading Program.

Bookbug is also a proud haven for visual artists seeking supply. We have a wide selection of tools and media for all levels of artists interested in a known or new technique, including, but not limited to: screen printing, print-making, oil painting, watercolor painting, and acrylic painting.
