Kids need more access to books! That’s why our literacy foundation is teaming up with the public Watsonville Charter School Of The Arts to convert a commercial step-van to a beautiful mobile library.
Our volunteers will use it as an inviting outreach and delivery vehicle during summers and weekends, while the charter school — WHICH CURRENTLY DOES NOT HAVE A LIBRARY — will access it during the school year to get books to its students.
Read more about this super special project, and join our campaign, which runs until the New Year. Even a $5 donation will help us towards our goal!!!
