Books for Bay, Incorporated is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Panama City, FL. We're dedicated to providing free books and educational materials to Bay County, FL's children and parents. Our vision is a literate Bay County in which all children have access to books and discover the joys and value of reading.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, nearly two-thirds of low-income families in the U.S. own no books. Books for Bay's goal is to motivate children to read by delivering free books and literacy resources to those children and families who need them most.
We want to inspire local children to be lifelong readers. Books for Bay provides new and used, free books for children to choose from and make their own. The seeds of inspiration in these books motivates children to follow their dreams and achieve their potential. Yes, it seems incredible for a book to launch a life, but it happens every day as hungry, inquisitive young minds reach out and grab hold of the new people, places, and ideas that books bring them.
