Community Giving

During a time of ongoing crisis directly impacting the bookstore's basic financial sustenance and disproportianately affecting those in highest need in our community, we are necessarily inviting those able to make direct contributions to our store's primary Community Giving Program:

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 a school or organization that serves high needs youth in Kalamazoo and would like to be a recipient of this program, please contact manager@bookbugkalamazoo.com.

In addtion to ROUND UP FOR READING, our bookstore offers the following Community Giving fundraising opportunities:

In-store Book Fairs

Welcome your supporters to shop our store (both online and in person) on specific date(s), and we will give a portion of the proceeds to your cause. For more information or to schedule a book fair, contact juliette@bookbugkalamazoo.com.
