Tri-City Ecology Center annual book donation
Submitted By Gail Blalock
The Tri-City Ecology Center recently made its 38th annual book and DVD donation to the Alameda County libraries in the Tri-City area. The donation included 15 titles, nine in the children/juvenile category and six for adults. It also included the four-part DVD program, Saving the Bay, recounting the story of the San Francisco Bay recently featured on PBS.
Books for adults included the much-acclaimed "The National Parks", "America's Best Idea", "Pedaling Revolution", "Whole Green Catalog", and the fascinating "Flotsametrics and the Floating World." The contributions of children's books featured "Monarch and Milkweed", "How We Know What We Know About Our Changing Climate", and "Let's Go Outside!", a follow-up to last year's donation of "I Love Dirt."
Over the past 38 years, the Ecology Center has donated approximately $37,000 in books, videos, and DVDs to the Fremont, Newark, and Union City libraries. This is the longest-running program in the Ecology Center's 38-year history thanks to generous donations from members and income from fundraisers. The Ecology Center hopes to continue this program for many more years.
