I have to leave for another meeting. Thanks to all the presenters today. So many great resources in the chat, too! Here’s one more: I have a teacher friend who is running a bookmobile out of her car this summer. She also started giving out donated books at farmer’s markets and other community events. Now she is helping to gather libraries of used books for organizations serving people experiencing homelessness. If anyone is interested in connecting with her for an event or to stock a library in a permanent space, please text me at 323-528-3051.
