Books and Barbershops

Books & Barbershops PosterYoung men getting their haircut at the Books and Barbershops Kick Off

Barbershops have always been a culturally significant place for men to gather and discuss current events, politics, and sports. It’s a place where fathers spend time with their children and where boys learn to become men. Now it is a place for reading and learning too. CFMB’s Books and Barbershops is a community visibility program that raises awareness on the value of academic mentoring, specifically in the area of early childhood literacy. We encourage you to ask one of the barbers for a book and read it to the children next to you.

Interested in getting involved? Participating barbershops will receive 10 to 20 books, the above Books & Barbershops poster, and acknowledgement on our website.

If interested in participating, you want to recommend a barbershop or you would like to make a book donation, contact us at [email protected] or 202-545-3058.
