Holiday toy and book drives

This holiday season, there are two ways to give at the library to those in need.

Donate Berkeley Books for Uganda is collecting books in the Moffitt Library lobby through January 15.  All types of books are welcome.  They will either be sold to generate funds for rebuilding schools in Northern Uganda, or (if appropriate) sent directly to these schools.  For more information, see the drive’s Facebook page or send e-mail to:

We are also supporting the Black Staff & Faculty Organization’s annual Gift and Toy Drive, collecting items for Bay Area children in foster care and others in need.  We are collecting new toys and gifts for children ages 6 months thru 16 years old.
