Free Books!!! If you don't have a book to swap, you may still come to get free books.
Please start boxing up your books and asking your friends to do the same.
Poor people are least likely to have books in their homes. Thus perpetuating the legacy of poverty. Your book donations make a difference.
Throughout the year Velocity of Books provides thousands of books to community service organizations such as Catholic Charities Center in Silver Spring, MD. They, in turn, provide the books to people who come to their services:

- Clothing, shoes, and diapers
- Parent Education and Empowerment Group (Abriendo Puertas)
- Financial Education classes
- Rent, Mortgage and Utility Assistance

Velocity of Books now provides books for the community at the WIC office in
Jack and Julian Thompson, Co-founders of Velocity of Books delivered the first load of books to WIC Wheaton today.
As they were visiting Westfield Wheaton to provide them with hundreds of free books to be be given out to the mall guests over the holidays, Jack and Julian stumbled upon the WIC office in the same building as Westfield management. They offered the WIC office lovely, age appropriate books for their young guests.
It was a joyous occasion knowing that some of the poorest people in our community have access to free books to read to their children. Together, we can shift the tides, empower others and have an impact on poverty.
