Books on Wheels - Saturday March 1st, 2014 at 9am

Thanks to First Book HQ, we're giving away 40,000 books FREE to  those who work with underserved communities in the Bay Area.   We've been asked some questions, so here come the answers:

What is it?:  40,000 FREE children's books to be given away

When is it? : Kick off at 9am on Saturday, March 1st

Where?  Sports Basement on Bryant St in San Francisco. Here's a map to help you get there.

Can anyone get free books?  No.  The books will be given to educators, community organisations and anyone who works with children and families where 70% of the population is considered 'low income'.  

Great! How do I sign up?  All recipients must register for the event before you arrive.  You can sign up on the First Book HQ website here:

Who is organising this? First Book San Francisco's Local Advisory Board is working in partnership with FirstBook National, Sports Basement, the American Federation of Teachers and United Educators of San Francisco.

Anything else I need to know? Yes!  Sports Basement is giving all recipients 10% off on purchases that day AND giving First Book San Francisco 10% from all sales - that's a LOT of books for kids who don't have any. 

So don't forget to register so we can contact you to let you know when to come and see you on March 1st.  Happy Reading!
