Free Bookmobile to Make Inaugural Appearance in Rose Parade
Written by admin, April 23rd, 2015   

121st Annual Luther Burbank Rose Parade & Festival

One of Sonoma County’s most honored traditions, the Luther Burbank Rose Parade & Festival has been a local favorite for 120 years!  This year’s theme, “Out of a Storybook”, is well matched to the Free Bookmobile’s mission and we were delighted to be invited to participate by Sonoma Media Group, the parent company of radio stations Mix 104.9, Froggy 92.9, Hot 101.7, The River 97.7, and KSRO 1350 AM.  Come join your fellow citizens in downtown Santa Rosa for the parade on Saturday morning, May 16, starting at 10 Am.  There will no doubt be some wonderfully creative floats on display, and be sure to look for our beautiful green book van alongside the Mix promotional truck!

Impact100 Sonoma Celebrates Free Bookmobile Partnership with New Video
Written by admin, April 23rd, 2015   

Our friends at Impact100 Sonoma have a great reason to celebrate in 2015.  In just their first five years of existence, they have leveraged the power of “women giving as one” to bestow over $1,000,000 to non-profit organizations serving Sonoma Valley!  As the recipient of two of Impact100′s grants, the Free Bookmobile was profiled last year on their website and this year was the subject of a short film highlighting our work in the Valley and our partnership with this productive philanthropic group.  We feel very fortunate to have received the video camera spotlight, as only five of their numerous grantees were chosen for the honor.  Check it out below!
