Work With Us

Bring Lit Boxes or Literacy Events to your high school, organization, or community event!

Lit Boxes for your School or Organization

We provide Lit Boxes filled with diverse, high-interest books and literacy materials to high schools, teen service organizations, and homeless shelters and drop-in centers for teens. We also provide free workshops for staff, adult mentors, peer mentors, and teachers. This is our most flexible programming option. Books and materials can be distributed immediately or used in on-site library spaces. Apply here.

Literacy Events for your School or Organization

The Book Truck visits and distributes books and literacy materials to teens at large events in partnership with Long Beach and Los Angeles County Title 1 high schools and other organizations for underserved teens, especially homeless and foster youth. Events should be for 100 – 500 high school-aged teens.

Fill out an event application today to learn more. Please keep in mind that we plan our schedule a semester in advance.

Do you have staff and/or peers we can train to recommend books to teens?

We offer virtual literacy workshops for anyone who would like additional support in recommending books and engaging teens in reading.
