Raising Funds for our Bookmobile!
Our next big step is transitioning from a pop-up tent to a super-accessible bookmobile. Our reading room pop-up model was a fantastic debut and a great way to offer our materials and empower the community, but the bookmobile will allow us to reach many more children all over the Bay Area. At the Farmers’ Markets, we were unable to lend out our collection, and unable to offer adequate space for workshops and campaign planning. Our vision is bigger than that, and our claymation film sumarizes our story best:
We have the books and resources, we just need an efficient way to get out there and disseminate. The bookmobile will let us have a consistent presence at multiple sites, and set up a schedule that will allow book-lending and movement-building.
Please help us with your donations and by telling your family and friends about our exciting bookmobile project. All donations will go directly towards purchasing and remodeling our new bookmobile, funding our programs in schools, and buying new, high quality social justice books and audiovisual resources.
Once we are up and trucking along, check back here for a schedule of our site visits. If you are an educator or youth program director who would like Green Branch to visit your site, please let us know! (A calendar link for our bookmobile should be coming soon to this page.)
We look forward to sharing our books and learning materials with all of you!
