BPLG Holiday Party

Saturday, December 6th, 2014

Please join us at our annual BPLG Holiday Party at Celia’s Mexican Restaurant:

Celia’s Mexican Restaurant

3740 El Camino Real
Palo Alto, CA
(650) 843-0643

Time: 6pm

We reserved the private upstairs area (unfortunately, this is not ADA accessible, as it only has stair access).
If you are able to contribute, please bring a book to support the Sunnyvale community and San Miguel School in particular. We are seeking Spanish and bilingual books, new and used.

San Miguel School (777 San Miguel Ave., Sunnyvale, CA 94085) is a Title I school in Sunnyvale; 66% of the school is Latino. The people in the San Miguel service area live far from the Sunnyvale Library. Even if they have library cards, often they have no transportation to get to the library, and there are no librarians there who speak Spanish. A bilingual story time, plus the opportunity to borrow books, furnishes this community with an opportunity to read, to become acquainted with bilingual books, and to own books of their own. Your contribution will help support outreach to all elementary schools in North and East Sunnyvale (where most Spanish speakers live, and most Spanish speakers go to school). Also leaflets at the Columbia Neighborhood Center, a City agency in N. Sunnyvale near San Miguel School; many Spanish speakers attend programs there.
