The Candle Lighters of Fremont, California, had generously funded the Booklegger Program in 2010 to enable them to buy replacement copies of well-loved Booklegger titles. The books have arrived, and a small display of them can be seen in the lobby at Fremont Main through the month of February. You might have seen some of the shiny new books in the children’s section of the Fremont Main Library and our other Fremont branches!
The Bookleggers are community volunteers trained by the Children’s Department of the Fremont Main Library who bring the joy of reading to K-8 schools in the Fremont Unified School District. We are in our 26th year. For more information, please go to http://www.aclibrary.org/services/bookLegger/default.asp?topic=BookleggerProgram&cat=BookleggerProgram
The Candle Lighters is a non-profit volunteer group dedicated to raising funds for non-profit groups/community-based projects in the Tri-City community (Fremont, Newark and Union City). They raise funds through their Ghost House proceeds. Candle Lighters is in its 42nd year. For more information on the Candle Lighters, please go to http://www.candlelighters.com/
Many thanks to the Candle Lighters from the Alameda County Library, the Fremont Main Library and the students who check out Booklegger books!
