West County Reads

West County Reads is an all-volunteer community collaborative founded in 2001 which promotes reading
success for all West Contra Costa County children. We collect and distribute approximately 10,000 books each year at local community events and at places families frequent via Take One/Leave One bookshelves, around the County.

We co-founded and coordinate the annual Richmond Tales Festival:An Afternoon of Family Literacy and Healthy Living.
