Eureka Celebrates Literacy Day

eureka-celebrates-literacy-dayEUREKA – Saturday was literacy day in Eureka, and community members celebrated with the grand opening of the city’s newest library.

The phone booth on F Street in Henderson Center was empty just a week ago and now it’s a lending library. As of Saturday residents can take and leave books from the redecorated box that was donated by a local business owner. Literacy day is a city wide celebration of reading and how it enriches our lives.

Also for Literacy Day, CAPE or “Community Access Project For Eureka” introduced a new mobile van that brings the library to you! It took its maiden voyage Saturday. The van will make regular trips to various organizations like youth groups and senior centers.

Community members donated more than 2,000 books, newspapers, magazines and other materials to help those in need experience the joy of reading.
