BOOKS FOR YOU MIAMI

"Donate to our children"

Who We Are

Books For You Miami is a Non Profit Organization created by Alejandro Barriga in March 2020. Books for You Miami redistributes used or new books and educational material completely free to communities, schools, or organizations in need at the local, state, and international levels. We believe that access to books and educational materials is a right, not a privilege.
