Rotary Club of Santa Rosa Foundation Generously Funds Free Bookmobile

Rotary Club of Santa Rosa & Foundation

We are thrilled to open a new relationship with the Rotary Club of Santa Rosa and Rotary Club of Santa Rosa Foundation as they have awarded us a generous Community Grant for our 2017 work in their area. The Free Bookmobile has historically spent much of its time and resources visiting a wide variety of locations throughout the greater Santa Rosa and Roseland areas, and this financial assistance will help us expand that even further. We are especially keen to visit those who are less fortunate, less able to get around to libraries on their own, and those who are at risk of falling behind in school due to language acquisition barriers.

Fortunately our give-away model is very popular and is helping establish a new generation of enthusiastic readers, even in communities where literacy has not traditionally been emphasized. The bookmobile vehicle is a fantastic kid magnet, and we make sure we have modern, engaging books on board for every stop on our schedule. Thank you, Rotary Club of Santa Rosa, for helping us reach even more of these vulnerable populations in 2017!
