Every $25 buys 200 gently used books from our partner supplier!
Did you Know? Books in the home are the strongest indicator of academic success – surpassing income, parents’ education, family composition and all other factors.
Research shows children in low income homes have fewer books at home than their peers in higher income homes. Poverty and Academic Performance are inversely related.
What can we do? It’s EASY.
Give Books to Kids!
By providing books to children in low-income homes to take and keep at home, we can help break the link between poverty and poor academic success.
Geri’s Locker Bookstores gets books in the hands of the kids who need them the most! By partnering with community-supporting organizations like Foundation Communities, AISD, Texas Advocacy Project, YMCA, Boys and Girls Clubs and Foster Village Austin, Geri’s Locker creates bookstores where the kids ARE and they can come pick out books to KEEP for FREE!
Geri’s Locker is accepting donations for purchase of bookstore materials including book shelves, posters and check out materials as well as new or gently used books.
Through our partnership with Books for International Goodwill,
every $25 = 200 children’s books!

Romans 12:6-8 says “We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.”
Together we can make a difference in ourselves, in each other and in our communities. #togetherDoingMore #givingTuesday
