Fourth-grade students at Christiansburg Elementary School enjoy books donated by Velocity of Books.
We'll be hosting an art auction in May to raise funds for programs such as the books by the pallet program, which delivers more than 20,000 books to schools each year.
Our programs also deliver thousands of books to Catholic Charities to be distributed to their social support centers, and to children in hospitals.
Your donation and/or purchase of art will help keep these programs and other programs running.
Please email: [email protected] to make a donation of art, money, or books.
Velocity of Books is providing a bookmobile, which will have a large variety of books for babies, children, teens, and some adult books as well.
The bookmobile will roll through communities in Montgomery County, Virginia, and Montgomery County, Maryland to collect and distribute books.
Please contact us if you'd like us to establish a book distribution route in your neighborhood. We are also looking for community Ambassadors to collect and distribute books. If you'd like to be a Community Ambassador, please contact us by Phone: 301-637-2754 Email: [email protected]
