Research indicates that having books in the home is strongly linked to educational achievement. Recognizing that reading development is a fundamental component of literacy, the Education Advisory Committee is introducing the “Recycle Book Program”. The program was conceived to help families build a home library for their children.
You can help promote literacy in Hollywood by collecting new or gently-used children’s books age infant through young adult. Books may be dropped off at the locations listed below during regular business hours. Look for a collection box with the Recycle Book label.
City Hall – 2600 Hollywood Boulevard, 1st Floor
David Park Community Center – 108 N. 33rd Court
Boulevard Heights Community Center – 6770 Garfield Street
Community Enhancement Collaboration, Inc. (CEC), a Hollywood-based, non-profit agency will distribute the books to eligible families in the community. Your donated books will enable these families to share in the pleasure of reading.
