Food to nourish the body, and books to nourish the soul. The Richmond Public Library will give away books to children in conjunction with the West Contra Costa Unified School District’s free summer lunch program on Thursday, July 13, at DeJean Middle School, and on Thursday, July 22, at Nystrom Elementary.

“The books were purchased with a generous grant from the California State Library,” according to City Manager Laura Snideman’s Weekly newsletter.

For more information, call the Children’s Department at (510) 6206557.

“Stay tuned to our Facebook page and the Children’s Services Summer Programs page on the Library’s website for a series of STEM classes and other activities,” Library officials said. “Also, come visit us in the Children’s Room to browse books and DVDs to borrow.”
