Readers’ Round-Up:

As part of Read Around the World month, the UCSB Women’s Center will collect children’s books of all languages in an effort to combat illiteracy and benefit less-fortunate children. The drive welcomes childhood textbooks, dictionaries, pop-up books, fiction, and biographies appropriate for ages up to 12. Books will be gathered for the entire month of March with drop-off points at various locations on the UCSB campus, including the Gevirtz School of Education, Office of Student Life, and all offices of apartment living and student housing.
