A drive to collect new or gently used books for pre-school and school-aged children begins Saturday, April 30 and concludes Sunday, May 15. Books can be donated at locations throughout Corrales, including the media room at Corrales Elementary School. On Monday, May 2, Ex Novo Brewery will donate $1 to the “Read to Me” books drive with every pint of beer purchased. Books can also be dropped off there into a bright blue donation bin.
Last year’s drive, a collaboration with Kiwanis Club of Corrales and its Key Club members at Cibola High, brought in more than 5,000 books. They were widely distributed locally and throughout the metro area, including to children in homeless shelters.
Monetary donations can be made at readtomeabqnetwork.org.
