Books Are GEMS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire children and empower families through literacy.
Located in El Paso, Texas, we serve our community
mainly through our Six (6) Free Books a Month Program!
This program allows us to give six (6) books each month (one  new, five  gently used books) to every child that comes into our bookstore at no cost to families. All of our books and materials have been generously donated.
Our vision is to see a book
in the hands of every child in our community.
By putting a book into the hands of every child in our community, we are changing lives one book at a time.
Our goal is to make books easily accessible to all families,
thereby increasing literacy, fluency,
and comprehension in children and their parents.
