We’re so grateful! Huge thanks to Basic Necessities of Livermore for their recent generous donations of brand new children’s books to the Free Bookmobile. Over the past few months they’ve passed forward 84 boxes of terrific titles that we’ve been putting to the best use possible: providing low-income children and their families with fun, educational literacy materials.
