Russian River & Rohnert Park-Cotati Rotary Clubs Come Up Big for Local Literacy
Written by admin, May 14th, 2019   

Rotary -- People of Action

We are thrilled to announce new support from both the Russian River & Rohnert Park-Cotati Rotary Clubs for bookmobile services to be provided in their regions. Rotary boasts a winning formula that blends local philanthropy, active community service, and awareness of some of the most challenging humanitarian issues faced across the globe. These clubs currently connect 1.2 million members from more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Wow!

In particular, the Russian River Rotary Foundation is currently working to help with local flood relief after the disastrous rise in water levels this past winter, especially in Guerneville. The Free Bookmobile is planning to utilize the club’s donation to do just that and make sure that affected children can continue rebuilding their home libraries. Much has been lost and we want to make sure that these kids’ education will be minimally affected. Click here to visit the club’s website where you’ll find a link near the top of the page to contribute to their overall efforts.

We have a long and happy relationship with the Rotary Club of Rohnert Park-Cotati, which is very active in getting hands-on with important community projects. Here’s a bit more about how they describe themselves: “We bring together leaders to identify both problems as well as opportunities. We tap into our professional skills, experience and networks to pinpoint solutions and ideas. Together we roll up our sleeves and mobilize our communities to get the job done. And, of course, in the process we develop great relationships and friends.”

The Free Bookmobile will continue its tradition of creative outreach in their area, which last season included a visit to one of the only home-school Girl Scout Troops in California and surprise service throughout Rohnert Park on New Year’s Day. We are especially impactful in Cotati, which lacks a public library.

Thank you, Rotary, for this support and for your wide-ranging efforts throughout the year!
