Updated distribution numbers

August 4, 2020

It has been a busy spring and summer getting books into the hands of students impacted by the COVID-19 shutdowns of schools and libraries! Since May 13, we have done distributions at 10 sites, giving about 6300 books to about 2,150 students throughout San Jose, East Palo Alto, and San Francisco. Thanks to all of the generous donors who supported this effort, and allowed us to put about $20,000 into direct giveaway of books to students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
