Community Giving

During this time of crisis we are priortizing the direct financial support of our most impacted staff. Please consider contributing any amount towards helping us sustain our booksellers and baristas through this extraordinary time.

Beyond meeting the current crisis, the bookstore takes take seriously our responsibility to give back to schools and organizations, and especially those who have chosen this is a bookstore| Bookbu as a primary, local independent source of books.

Because of the volume of donation requests received and our desire to make the most informed, meaningful donations possible, we have developed the following community giving programs designed to carry out our mission. Please contact manager@bookbugkalamazoo.com to inquire about community giving participation.

 

Round Up for Reading

Round Up for Reading exists to expand the home libraries of youth in Kalamazoo County who are part of historically marginalized communities and / or otherwise have insufficient access to necessary resources.

Every month we partner with a youth-serving community organization to put beloved, relevant books into the hands of young people who need them. For the duration of that month, this is a bookstore / Bookbug invites community members to round up their in-store purchases to the dollar amount of their choice as contribution to Round Up. At month’s end we take those funds, select great titles, and supply books to be distributed amongst the youth recipients.

If you are part of an organization that represents students who meet the stated parameters and can offer a responsible communication point person within your organization who will commit to facilitation of Round Up delivery, please contact anne@bookbugkalamazoo.com.

If you are part of a business or organization that would like help us put books in the hands and homes of youth through sponsoring Round Up, please contact manager@bookbugkalamazoo.com.
