About Barbershop Books

Barbershop Books, Inc. is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit literacy organization based in New York City. We believe that when communities provide kids with early, positive, and culturally meaningful reading experiences, they identify as readers and read for fun. Our programs distribute fun, kid-approved books to barbershops and community-based organizations across America. Since the start of the pandemic, we have developed a variety of innovative digital programs such as our free e-library and a fun supplemental literacy program designed to help teachers create more personalized reading experiences for students.


Marketing Intern

July 2023 - September 2023 New York City, NY
“I loved the independent nature of the internship! We were able to collaborate with fellow interns and plan our own schedules involving projects which was great. We were also invited to sit in on marketing meetings and e-learning platform meetings, which was super interesting.”
