National African Amerian Read-In

Tree House Books will join organizations across the country in the 24th National African American Read-In (, which encourages the celebration of literacy as part of African American History Month in February. Children, parents, and the public are invited to Tree House Books to hear children read aloud, participate in a student reading circle, share a story, and honor books authored by African Americans. 

“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”—Frederick Douglass
Tree House Books is a nonprofit organization on a mission to grow and sustain a community of readers, writers, and thinkers in North Central Philadelphia. Packed with books and homemade art, Tree House is a meeting spot for local children to explore learning in fun, creative ways that encourage a lifelong relationship with education and reading. Children can join an afterschool program (3 to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday), summer camp, and book clubs; meet renowned children’s authors; work with literacy coaches; and constantly build their at-home libraries. Last year, Tree House Books provided 6,000 books to the community, primarily through free book bins.

“Tree House Books means a good place to read books and get them. It is a world of imagination, and a world that you can be yourself in, and read all different kinds of books.” —Nyah, age 11
