Ashay By The Bay is a unique online book reseller located in California’s East Bay Area. We sell books throughout the country and we offer our customers a great selection of African American and Multi-Cultural books as well as many other educational products and services. We also participate in many local and national community festivals, events and conferences.
In 2007 we began offering Online and Onsite Book Fairs to schools and organizations as a means of fundraising. Understanding the market we know it is one of the best ways to encourage reading and introduce kids to new literature. We call it "Mindful Intervention" because through our book fairs schools can offer a greater selection of culturally respnsive reading choices for their students. And disadvantaged African American youth will also benefit from this learning opportunity at a critical time in their lives.
Now with President Obama’s educational agenda underway, to thoroughly educate all children from early childhood through high school, we are ready to move forward to help build the libraries and direct more quality African American and Multi-Cultural literature into schools and homes. With this in mind, we are ready to work with you as an educational resource and fund raising partner to provide all children with the best in African American and Multi-Cultural Children’s literature.
