RAISING A READER NEWS

Monday Club Raising A Reader Summer Book Drive Launch on May 9

2022 EQUITY & ACCESS TO LITERACY: GETTING MORE BOOKS TO CHILDREN.
A collaboration between The Monday Club Raising A Reader Committee and the SLO Food Bank.

We will collect new and “gently loved” children’s books (Infant – Grade 6) from the community and deliver them to the SLO Food Bank to be distributed via a program called “Breakfast Bags.” We will also donate books to the County-wide Raising A Reader program events in October.

Join us as we launch this year’s book drive on May 9 at 1:30pm at The Monday Club with a presentation of a donation to the Community Foundation for Raising A Reader. Everyone from the SLO Community is welcome!

Book Drop-off dates: 2nd & 4th Mondays in May, June and July, 2-5 pm. Note: drop-off time for May 23 is 12-3 pm. We hope you all will join us in donating a book for this exciting project!
