School Lunch Program
The Always Buying Books School Lunch program is making waves! We have recently been interviewed by KOAM, FOX News, and the Joplin Globe!
The Book Buffet
The BOOK BUFFET outside on the sidewalk is full of great books, table after table, all available for a cash donation that goes towards a different area school each week. These books are either over flows from the store or books we bought in bulk.
We go through the Book Buffet every day, adding new books and removing old ones.
Books are sectioned off with the RED RACKS. Paperback fiction, children’s books, hardback fiction, non-fiction, crafts, cookbooks, biographies, and Christian books.
Books Behind Bars
For the last 8 years, Always Buying Books has donated books to city and county jails, as well as state and federal prisons.
These books come at no cost to the inmates.
We have also helped another bookstore in Illinois begin a very similar program in their state.
