Supporting Joplin NALA

Sales from our Book Buffet, as well as donations from several local authors, helped Always Buying Books contribute to the Joplin NALA organization.

NALA is a great organization that supports adult literacy in our community.

Books Behind Bars

For the last 6 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.
