Buy a Book, Give a Book

The most important step in combating illiteracy is making sure that age and content appropriate books are available to young readers. Creating an opportunity for the Manatee community to help in this effort was an important part of the planning process for the Blue Manatee Literacy Project. The bookstore is surrounded by support from compassionate people. With a 1:1 program, we are all able to be a part of empowering young readers to succeed. 

Through unique partnerships in the book industry, the Blue Manatee Literacy Project can donate a book to a disadvantaged reader every time a book is purchased through our organization. Whether you shop in the store, online or at an off-site event, you are donating to literacy programs in the community. Every book you purchase, a book is donated to a young reader in need… so buy more books! Buy them for yourself, order your child’s school books through us, give books as gifts and please tell everyone you know about our program. 

The ManaTeam appreciates your continued support. If you have any questions about our 1:1 program, please email us at We are happy to provide more information.
