Great news! Our pop-up library at Northgate Mall has been extended yet again. We will now be there through the end of April.
We hope to see you there!
As of March 1, 2019 our hours at the mall are changing. Here are the new hours:
Drop-off new socks in adult sizes to the downtown library lobby! Your donations will be passed along to the Ritter Center to provide warmth and comfort to our homeless neighbors.
The Teen Advisory Board brainstormed ways we can give back to our community. We settled on a sock drive to help keep our community’s feet warm, dry and healthy.
According to David Geffen from the School of Medicine at UCLA, “The average person walks about 4 miles a day. The average person struggling with homelessness walks 10 miles a day. Homeless individuals often rely on their feet as their primary means of transportation, but frequently do not have an opportunity to remove their shoes at the end of the day.”
Your donation of a pair or pack of socks will have a huge impact!
