Established in 1997

Book’em and Reading Is Fundamental Nashville share the desire to inspire a love of books and reading in all children by providing reading volunteers to schools, pre-schools and library story times, and books to children who may not have books of their own, in order to send the message that reading is important and fun. The two organizations merged in 2006 under the name of Book’em in order to enhance and expand services. This Fund was created to help ensure the future growth and stability of Book’em.
