It's true: you can find cheaper books and free shipping elsewhere online. But when you buy from us you're supporting a small, locally-owned business that's bringing more books to kids in the Bronx, a community without a children's bookstore for its 600,000 residents under the age of 18. Your money will circulate throughout the Bronx, and your purchase will support people, not corporate algorithms.
Boogie Down Books™ is a bookstore-without-walls for kids, teens, families, and educators in the Bronx and beyond. As a mission-driven social enterprise, we are both for-profit and for-people.
We're a start-up empowering Bronx kids, teens, caregivers, and educators through transformative reading experiences and inspiring events.
We're developing pop-up events, mobile book sales, author events, workshops, and literacy initiatives in collaboration with community partners.
We respect the privacy of all members of our community. We do not share or post photographs or video in which individuals are identifiable unless we have express written permission from them or a parent/guardian. If you have any questions or concerns about this policy, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
