Unlocking Lives & Imaginations through Literacy at work:

HALLOWEEN 2018 – 1,100 Books given away to kids in the Sylmar, CA area.  



Our Fall Fundraiser was a big success.  Our Drag Queen Bingo hosted by Nikki Licious was amazing and the money raised is going to help us get more books to kids.  Check out some of the action from the event.



Over 600 books & a whole bunch of Book Heroes - CicLAVia June 24th

We had a great day handing out over 600 books to kids and having fun with so many of the kids who wanted to dress up and Be A Book Hero too!  We were exhausted at the end of the day, but everyone of the smiles on those kids faces makes it worth it every time.  Thanks to Councilwoman Nury Martinez for her support and commitment to literacy and we are looking forward to building 4 book boxes with her to be placed throughout her districts.
