Book Sort 2017

Thursday, December 14, 2017 at 03:30 PM

sort_2_girls_carry_faces_cropped.jpgEach year Better With Books provides thousands of brand new books to kids living below the poverty line in LA’s neediest neighborhoods. For many, it is the first book they've ever owned.

On Dec. 14 from 3:30PM – 7:30PM, we need volunteers to sort, count, and box books to prepare for their Holiday Book Giveaway.  This is a family-friendly event and children ages 5 and up are welcome with a parent or guardian; teens are welcome with adult supervision.  Come for all or part of the event and dress casually. 

Free parking is available.
