New & Gently Used Book Drive At Otis
Mon, Mar 11
Frank Otis Elementary

Starting today, March 11th and running through the end of the month, my Otis alum (now a 10th grader at AHS) is holding her second annual new and gently used book drive to benefit children in need. Would so appreciate any donations to help make her drive a success and spread the love to kids in need.

Here is her write-up:

I am running a book drive to collect new and like-new books to benefit the East Bay Children’s Book Project (EBCBP) and was wondering if you had any new or like-new books that you would like to donate for the cause. The EBCBP is a local, Oakland based non-profit organization that gives books to children of all ages in need. Any donation helps! I started the drive last year because of how important books have always been to me and because I wanted other kids to have access to books as well; with your help I collected over 500 books!

There will be a bin near the main office, March 11-March 29.

If you would like any more information on the organization, here is their website:

Thank you and here's to the world of books!
