Bring Me A Book

About

Bring Me A Book™ Hong Kong (BMABHK) is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2006 to serve children who do not have access to quality books and who are not read aloud to on a regular basis. We provide libraries of quality, hardback children’s books and read aloud training to children and families.

Through innovative library and training programs, BMABHK reaches underserved children and families in nurseries, kindergartens, community centres, shelters, health clinics, and in workplace.

BMABHK is an affiliate of Bring Me A Book™ Foundation which is a 501 (c) (3) award winning literacy non-profit headquartered in California, founded by Judy Koch in 1997. The Hong Kong affiliate was established by James and Su Chen from the Chen Yet-Sen Family Foundation.
