CCF Book to Action

CCF Book to Action

When: July 29, 2021, 9 a.m.
Where: Outreach

SCPL’s County Correctional Facility (CCF) Team and the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office are partnering to bring Book to Action to the people in the Re-Entry & Rehabilitation facility. Together, we will READ and DISCUSS Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen by Jose Antonio Vargas, then ACT to move the needle on issues related to these themes. Two book discussions will be facilitated by a SCPL Volunteer and copies of the book provided to all incarcerated participants. Recommended reading lists, relevant resources, and information about the history of immigration in Santa Cruz County will be shared with participants.

Book to Action is an initiative for libraries to connect with their communities to tackle important issues and encourage reading, discussion, and action. For centuries, Santa Cruz County has attracted immigrants from across the world.

Book to Action is a program of the California Library Association, supported in whole or in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
