Our Goal

The National Buy a Book Day Foundation's primary activity is educating the American people on the importance of books to our culture and community by encouraging citizens to go to any bookstore on September 7th of each year, which we hope to establish as National Buy a Book Day, and buy a book. By buying a book together, as a community, every year on the same day, we come togther in support of books. This is the exclusive goal of the organization, and it is funded entirely from public and corporate donations.
