“I had no idea what I was doing,” says Betty Metz, Founder and President of Books-A-Go-Go.
Luckily for kids in Jacksonville, FL and later all over the world, she figured it out. During the past 10 years Betty and Books-A-Go Go have distributed more than 1 million books to kids in the United States and in 25 different countries. It all started with one person looking to make a difference in the lives of children in need.
“I moved from Pittsburgh to Jacksonville and I wanted to get involved with something, volunteer-wise,” says Betty, “and I got involved with an art program that was going to inner-city schools.”
