BOOKENDS
April 7, 2011

Gently used books all need a place to go to be read again. Bookends provides an opportunity for students to help other students through book drives and book shares. This is a positive way to keep literacy alive and keep the art of reading books part of education. Bookends hosts many events and opportunities to share books. I have hosted book drives and been at schools on the receiving end of drives. Either way is a great experience. Great organization!

The Great!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand it! Hire program directors for San Gabriel Valley and Inland Empire and then Orange County and then.....
