The first Boca de Oro Book Fair was on March 7th 2020, One week later the COVID-19 Shut downs happened. This was the last public event they had in Downtown Santa Ana in 2020. They are not going to let COVID-19 stop them from spreading their love of literacy in our communities. This is why they are moving from the Boca de Oro Book Fair to Lending Libraries this year. This is how they will bring the book fair to every neighborhood in Santa Ana. This is how our neighborhoods can help all the youth still stuck at home with remote learning by sharing your favorite novels that are sitting around the house collecting dust with one another in this local book exchange.
If you are interested in this free Lending Library in your neighborhood please contact Madeleine Spencer at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 714-815-2653.
