Need: Bilingual Books


The bilingual section is the small shelf in the back.

EDIT: Thank you! We got nearly $500 in already, and we have decided to test a new campaign tool called WonderWe to help us get the final $500 in for the books.

Those who have toured our building always comment on how great our little library is upstairs. It is a fun room, filled with bookshelves, and bean bags. There our children can grab books to read when they are here for programs. We work hard during the year to keep the books organized and sorted by age and reading level. The one sad part of our library is how small the bilingual book section is… we do well with lots of donations of English books but rarely get bilingual books.

We need your help to grow this section of our library! We have worked on a list of books that we want, and you can call us and ask for the list and order us a few books, or send us a check to help with some costs for us to buy some books, or if you click on our website you can donate via paypal nice and easy to help us buy some books.

Our wish list is about $1,000 long… We would love to have to build a few more shelves for our bilingual books before the students come for summer camp on June 13th. Help us out please!
