Thank you to everyone who donated to our Holiday Book Drive! In just two weeks, we collected 725 books for the Children's Institute, Inc., an organization dedicated to helping neglected and abused children in Los Angeles. These books will be given to children in need during the Children's Institute's annual holiday festival later this month.
Special thanks to the Playa Vista Elementary School for donating over 500 books, to Clara Hazlitt for bringing this to the attention of her fellow students and Girl Scouts, to all the library staff who donated books and helped to box them up, and to our campus partners: the Academic Resource Center, Facilities and Maintenance, and LMUCC. And, of course, a huge thank you to Carol Raby who organized the book drive to such a degree of success that we're planning to do it again next year!
