HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

The best predictor of reading achievement for children living in poverty is the quality of their school library. No matter where they live, all children deserve access to books and stories that will help them excel in the classroom. Help us re-open and improve the libraries this summer at these schools: Sierra Vista Elementary, Laurel Elementary, and Carver Elementary.

DESCRIPTION

We are in need of volunteers on Saturday, June 12, 2021! We are also seeking volunteers to help re-open two long-shuttered libraries in Compton this summer on July 24, 2021 and August 14, 2021!

Please join us for a day of mural-painting and book processing.


ITEMS NEEDED

We ask that volunteers bring their own snacks and water. Please wear a mask and clothes that you feel comfortable painting in. Be prepared to stay until 2 p.m. though we often finish earlier.
