OUR STORY

The Journey of Bronx Bound Books

Born from a dream to foster a love for reading in the Bronx, Bronx Bound Books started as a humble bookmobile. In the wake of Barnes & Noble's departure from the Mall at Bay Plaza, a stark void in book access was left in the Bronx. This ignited a drive in us to fill that gap - not just to replace what was lost, but to reimagine it. Bronx Bound Books was born with a steadfast mission: to increase book ownership and keep the joy of reading alive in every corner of the Bronx and beyond. From these beginnings, our dream has grown. Today, we're a bookmobile and a community bookshop, highlighting diverse stories and narratives that represent our community's experiences. We're now on a path to establishing our very own brick-and-mortar bookstore, in the hopes of creating a permanent literary hub for our community to gather.

INCREASING ACCESS TO BOOK OWNERSHIP

Empowering Our Communities,
One Book at a Time

At Bronx Bound Books, our mission is simple yet profound: make book ownership accessible to everyone in the Bronx and beyond. We believe in the transformative power of reading and its ability to open doors to new worlds and possibilities.

Offering Unique Literary Experiences

At Bronx Bound Books, we offer a variety of services designed to ignite a love of reading in every heart. We believe in curating powerful, transformative experiences for readers of all ages, both children and adults. We offer mobile book fairs, author events, community collaborations, and more.

BRINGING STORIES TO LIFE

A CHAPTER AT
THE MALL AT BAY PLAZA

Our time at the Mall at Bay Plaza in 2023 was a powerful chapter in our story and a pivotal moment in our mission. This significant period in our journey was captured by News 12, highlighting our efforts to bring diverse literature and community-driven events to the heart of the Bronx. Our Bronx Bound Books kiosk allowed us to connect with our community, share stories, host author and community events, and ignite a collective passion for reading

OUR BRICK AND MORTAR DREAM

A Vision for Tomorrow

Our journey is just beginning! We are actively working towards establishing a permanent home for Bronx Bound Books - a haven where our community can gather, learn, and celebrate the joy of reading. 

We envision a dedicated space where our community of readers can gather, engage, and thrive. While we're not there yet, each bookmobile visit and book sold takes us one step closer!
