The Literacy Club’s Latest Chapters
Back to School – Backpack Distribution (August 2016)
We partnered with LAPD Rampart Station to give out backpacks & shoes. The Literacy Club’s Summer Fundraiser generated enough money to provide 60 backpacks filled with supplies for some kids in the Rampart area. We also distributed 100’s of free brand new books to kids at the event. It was a great day filled with smiles, hope and inspiration!
Our master builder Douglas had a busy June book seeding libraries in the local area. He visited over a dozen little libraries (some we built and some that other stewards had built) #bookseeding
June was busy for Douglas. He had a blast meeting with Todd Bol (Exec Director of Little Free Library). Pretty sure there was a lot of brainstorming and laughter! We love spending time with Todd and appreciate all of his support for what we are doing to “Inspire Communities One Book at a Time”
In The News
We had the opportunity to partner with Family Pride of Northeast Ohio and put together 35 backpacks filled with supplies and brand new books for some of the children Family Pride serves. It was awesome to see their faces and to get a chance to provide a great start to a new school year for these kids.
Some great follow-up coverage of our LAPD West Traffic Library we unveiled on 3/16/16. Thank you LA This Week for the doing the piece and sharing it!
Front page article in the Star Beacon paper about the library we unveiled on 4/21/16 in partnership with Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) [www.bacaworld.org]. It was presented to the Ashtabula County Courthouse in Jefferson, Ohio. First ever in a courthouse!
The Literacy Club doesn't just build a library and leave it, we stay connected to each library and location. We are always ready to help with replenishing new books or doing maintenance to keep the library looking great so it can continue to inspire. Check out some of the recent restocking and maintenance the team has done.
