Your donations to BHB make it possible for us to help librarians like Jeff in the Leake County Correctional Facility Library! He needed a book and CD in order to fix their library system software, and we were able to purchase a used copy for him to work with. Thank you!!
We were thrilled that BHB volunteer and Mississippi Roads producer Scott Bradfield invited us to be a part of a show all about books! Check out the full episode here.
Happy New Year, friends!
We get many requests for calendars. If you have any soft cover 2019 calendars or planners, we could use them! We are not able to send in spiral bound books.
Lots of sizes and colors! Each purchase sends 3 packages of books to prisoners, and helps us spread the word.
You can purchase by clicking here, at a book packing party, or come see us on Saturday, September 29th at Wellsfest to buy one in person.
The Greater Jackson Arts Council generously awarded us a $500 grant to save the world. We are going to send out more than 100 package of books to prisoners with it, which is a good start.
We had another successful year at the book festival! It was so awesome seeing people wearing their BHB shirts at the event.
We raised nearly $1,000, which will help us send about 300 packages of books to prisoners. 😀
We sold out of shirts and many visitors wanted to order our “book power” design. Pre-order here and we’ll make the order on September 1st
Not only do we have the best volunteers, but we also have the best visitors. Thanks to URJ Mitzvah Corps for including us in your travels to learn more about social justice projects in the south!
We have a new t-shirt design, just in time for our favorite event of the year- the Mississippi Book Festival. If you pre-order, it helps us keep more money free for postage costs, and allows you to pick the color you want! Get yours here.
