CANCELED – Upcoming Volunteer Information Evening

February 25, 2020

UPDATE: This event has been canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and will be rescheduled. New date TBD.

On March 10th, from 5:30-6:15pm we will hold the first of what we hope to be a regularly occurring event, a chance for anyone interested in learning more about the work of Access Books Bay Area, the impact we are having, and how you can get more involved, to come and spend some time learning about our organization.

This first event will be held at the newly refurbished Los Robles Elementary School Library in East Palo Alto, site of our most recently completed project. Attendees who were not able to join us as volunteers will get a chance to see firsthand the work that we do, while enjoying light refreshments and a presentation from Amanda Collins, our Executive Director and founder.
