My Gym Santa Rosa & KBBF 89.1 FM

We are excited about two upcoming family-friendly community events that are also opportunities for you to help us stock our shelves with great books! On Friday, July 21, My Gym Children’s Fitness Center in north Santa Rosa will be hosting their Family Fun Night and the Free Bookmobile will be there to join the festivities from 5:30 – 7 Pm. This is a great chance to bring us your new and gently used kids’ books, as well as to check out what My Gym has to offer. The experts in children’s fitness, My Gym has developed an extraordinary program and facility devised to help children 6 weeks thru 10 years of age develop physically, cognitively and emotionally. Their structured, age-appropriate, weekly classes incorporate music, dance, relays, games, special rides, gymnastics, sports and more. Children have loads of fun as they gain strength, balance, coordination, agility and flexibility while developing social skills, confidence and self-esteem. Local owner Lorna Brown has been a Free Bookmobile supporter for years and we’re really looking forward to a good turnout.

On Saturday, July 29, KBBF Bilingual Radio 89.1 FM will be hosting a special family event at the station (1700 Corby Avenue). Scheduled for 1 – 4 Pm, KBBF will be featuring notable artists’ displays, local non-profits, hands-on art activities for children, and lots of yummy food for purchase as a fundraiser for this all-volunteer radio station. And of course the Free Bookmobile will be offering fabulous books to all in attendance. We would be grateful for any bilingual and/or Spanish-language books you could bring that day to boost our future outreach to the county’s low-income Latino communities. Hope to see you there!
