This will be a children's book drive to help us collect books to share with children in need all over Stanislaus County. We serve communities that have limited access to books. We have different partnerships that allow us to give books away at many of the events we hold or attend. This book drive helps us to stock our shelves with wonderful stories, ready to be shared throughout the year; taken home from parks, community centers, and Little Free Libraries throughout Stanislaus County. There are two ways to participate in this book drive. 1. Collect new and gently used books from now until Love Modesto on Saturday, April 25th. Then, deliver the books to the library during Love Modesto. 2. We need a handful of volunteers to join us on at Love Modesto on Saturday, April 25th, then head to the library to receive, sort, and box books. You could also do both! We would love to include children, book clubs, civic organizations, and church groups in collecting (and perhaps delivering) the books. Thank you so much for considering our project!

Love Modesto April 25th begins at 8am on I & 10th Streets, right in front of the Gallo Center. Festivities (free food, t-shirt, fun, etc.) begin at 8 am and the Rally will begin around 9 am. You will meet here BEFORE GOING TO YOUR PROJECT LOCATION.

When you arrive, you'll want to find your project sign and meet your project leader. After the Rally, you will meet at your project sign and hear important instructions from your project leader BEFORE GOING TO YOUR PROJECT LOCATION.

Thank you for your willingness to "Love Modesto"! If you have any questions, please email
