The Book Fairies seeks to increase access to books by upcycling gently used books and distributing them to schools, non-profit organizations and social service agencies serving Long Island and NYC. We hold monthly Community Book Fairs which allow qualified schools and organizations to hand pick unlimited books for their programs.
To receive books, schools/organizations must serve high need populations. Schools must have Title I status or have at least 50% of their student body eligible to receive free/reduced lunch (this does NOT include NYS providing free lunch to all students during the pandemic). You can check your school’s Title I status by clicking here: https://nces.ed.gov/ccd/schoolsearch/ Type in your schools name, then look under the School Detail Section. Qualifying schools will have the section Title I School-Wide Program: Yes
