"The 2 Lit Crew"

"PLACING BOOKS IN THE HANDS OF EVERY CHILD"

With more than 70 national literacy access points (50+ of which are in the Greater Miami Valley Region in Ohio), there is a collective group of people who sustain the ecosystem of book acquisition and distribution. "The 2 Lit Crew" is a family of book lovers that want to place books into the hands of everyone, while having a good time doing it. Within our literary oases, this network is our water. The formulation of "The 2 Lit Crew" developed out of a partnership with the the Dayton Dollar Book Swap and UpDayton.

Get Lit on Literacy

There are several ways you can get involved in the effort to continuously sustain the urban literary oases. Here is the operations of family members of "The 2 Lit Crew":

1) Volunteer 3 hours at the Book Swap on behalf of our organization and we'll receive $30 in credits to books. So you can a) come out to one of our 'Lit on Literacy' volunteer days, b) register yourself or a group of people to volunteer. Click here

2) Distribute books to identified literacy access points and locations of The Root, Houses of Knowledge, Reading Pakrs and/or through our Words on Wheels program. 

3) Install and/or build Houses of Knowledge and beautification and grounds management for Reading Parks.  

Books & Brews

Become a family member by volunteering with a passionate group of book and education lovers. When you do so, you can come joint us for our "Books and Beers" events that celebrate everyone's hard work with games, creative fellowship and loose book clubs. These events are held at local businesses, such as restaurants, breweries, wineries and cafes. More details coming soon!


Thank you to our partners that make "The 2 Lit Crew" possible
