SSR Library Book Drive

Hello Panther Families –

Happy New Year! We are kicking off 2019 with an SSR Library Book Drive.

Each classroom has its own SSR library (Sustained Silent Reading) for kids to access and these libraries need some love and new books! Now through January 31st we will be collecting books and monetary donations. Please see below for ways to contribute:

  1. Drop gently used books off at Ruth Labrie’s house: 1409 Excelsior Ave (directly across from Edna Brewer soccer field)
  2. Pick a book (or two!) from the Teachers’ Wish List

Big asks from the Staff are:

  • Books featuring people of color as main characters
  • Graphic novels
  • Books with LGBTQ main characters
  • Anime
  • Popular series
  1. No time to shop? Please feel free to send money via Venmo (@Ruth-Labrie) or PayPal 510-378-2141

Thank you very much! Any questions, please reach out to Ruth at
