May 2nd – May 20th

Share your love of reading AND advocate for diverse voices!

Help stock the shelves of our Read in Color book boxes!

What is Read in Color?

Read in Color is an initiative from Little Free Library library to distribute books that provide perspectives on racism, social justice, and celebrate BIPOC, LGBTQ, and other marginalized voices. The books inside also give our communities the opportunity to see themselves represented in the stories and illustrations.

What Can I Do?

Donate books for all ages to CAPI’s Read in Color Book Drive to help keep the shelves of our little libraries stocked. Drop books off between May 2nd and May 20th at our office on East Lake Street (3702 E. Lake Street) or our location in Brooklyn Center (5930 Brooklyn Blvd.). Need ideas on what to donate? Check out the handy link below! And, thanks to our friends at Red Balloon Bookshop, you can purchase items for our book drive from them and receive a 20% discount!

Need more info, contact Monique Hernandez. Thanks for supporting CAPI!
