Charnice Milton Community Bookstore is a literacy oasis in a book desert, helping local youth build home libraries and promoting literature-related events. Titles are currently limited due to pandemic conditions. Store operations on hold. In general: We offer free books to young people, sell books local adults for nominal fees, and maintain an on-line store to support our literacy efforts, focusing on east of the Anacostia in DC. Launched in May 2017, the project honors the memory of slain journalist Charnice A. Milton (6/19/87- 5/27/15). Some books available at Busboys and Poets, just down MLK Avenue.
