About The Event

This Juneteenth, Access Books Bay Area will showcase a display during several celebrations hosted by Stanford University and the City of Redwood City.

 

The display will highlight Access Books Bay Area’s important mission, provide details about several of the libraries it has created, and offer opportunities for people to support our work. Supporting community Juneteenth celebrations is crucial for us as it aligns with our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and promoting literacy in all communities. Our involvement not only strengthens our ties with the community but also enriches our organizational culture, promoting values of unity, respect, and mutual understanding.
