Donate Gently Used, Current Books

Thanks to our generous community, the Grant library is amazing! Now, we have a chance to help other schools in town increase their book selections. For the month of October, you can pare down your bookshelf at home and pass on gently used, current books that your child has outgrown. Grant's librarian will donate these books on your behalf to local schools in need. Book donations can be left on the shelves in the Grant school office! Thank you for helping Grant make sure that even more Petaluma kids have access to great books.
