“Everything begins in the schools”. Pepe Mujica
We create, share and diffuse free books. We are not a publishing house, thus, we do not sell to the bookstores. Our books are free. We diffuse them on different occasions, such as literary festivals, through reading groups, and more often during our class visits to middle and high school students. Little free libraries scattered all around the world are our most important distribution channel.
Our mission is to join poor areas, where children have difficult access to culture. In order to guarantee equality in education, we constantly look for professors, booksellers, librarians, or reading groups willing to help.
We print and ship free of charge. However, you can also find our books in the online stores. We use the proceeds from the online sales to print extra copies. (See the income/outcome chart at the bottom of this website). Some public libraries in France, in the UK and the US also have our books in their catalogue.
We are currently working on a more extended distribution program. We would like to involve more publishing houses and create a more expanded circuit of donations saving all of those copies that are usually pulped or just unsold.
We are looking forward to receiving your invitation and meeting you…
