Mission #4: Fiesta Book Mobile

Social Activism Month!

For our 4th Fiesta Movement Mission, we helped The Friends of the Brighton District Library move their donated books to off-site storage. While that might not sound like much, volunteering like this is a major help to libraries across the country.

Many libraries do not receive enough state funds to operate. They rely on donations and volunteers from the community. The Friends of the Brighton District Library raise more funds each year than The Library receives from the State of Michigan. Without them, The Library could not continue to fund all the wonderful programs and events they provide for local children.

If there is a local library in your heart, take the time to donate your used books, or even your time, to help keep them going strong.
