Our Community

May 2018

A donation of 11 books marks the beginning of our partnership with the
African Community Learning Program.

These titles will help the ACLP build their own library and enrich their summer readings.
We are proud to support Aminata Sy and her team in their effort
to create a library of Empowering African Stories.





October 2017

We are starting the year with a special celebration of comic books and other titles from Flying Eye Books and NoBrow. 

We love the biography series, such as Audubon, on the Wings of the World, Einstein, and Shackleton’s Journey. And the comic book variety is also far too tempting. During the month of October, stop by Bindlestiff Books for a wide selection of books and get a free comic book with every Fying Eye or NoBrow title.


A Book a Day would like to thank Flying Eye Books and NoBrow for bringing such fantastic graphic novels to our kids.

In October twenty new titles will be added to the school libraries at the Henry C. Lea School and the Penn Alexander School.

In this selection, we are focusing on biographies, graphic novels and on books promoting beautiful artwork.




We will continue featuring publishers whose titles are intriguing and draw our attention.

Our thanks to Bindlestiff Books for their continued support and partnership.



The A Book a Day program works in open partnership with the Henry Charles Lea and Penn Alexander schools, WePac (West Philadelphia Alliance for Children), and with an independent bookstore in West Philadelphia – Bindlestiff Books.

All our book orders are placed through Bindlestiff Books, located an equal distance from the Henry Charles Lea School and Penn Alexander School, at 4530 Baltimore Avenue.  Kids from both schools are regular visitors to the store, where they can find another book refuge in the neighborhood.
