Books Beyond Bars' new years resolution: remember to update our website! But despite online dormancy, BBB is still alive and well. IS alums Shanna Shiah and Randa Cardwell have been making regular bimonthly visits to Nidorf, and came to our most recent meeting to talk with new members about their incredibly rewarding experiences and how to start the volunteer process. We've secured another year of Community Activities Council funding to purchase new titles, and on the horizon, we're starting to plan for our annual book sale in May, as well as a couple of smaller events (keep an eye out for updates!).
If you're interested in learning more, getting involved, or donating books, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We're especially looking for donations of urban fiction and Spanish-language books. Our Amazon wishlist is an easy way to support our work, especially if you're outside the LA area. Youth at Nidorf are always really excited to receive new reading materials!
