Acalanes senior Michael Brady is organizing a local book drive for the charity organization Books for the Barrios.
Books for the Barrios helps collect donated books and then distribute them to low-income families and schools.
The majority of the books go to young children, so the best donations are children’s storybooks.
Barrels for book donations are set up at some local Lafayette schools. Donations can also be made by leaving the books on your porch and emailing Michael atÂ firstname.lastname@example.org with an address to pick them up.
