MLK Book Drive

Coming of Age and its Senior Corps RSVP program will be sponsoring a book drive to help build a NEW library at the Del Valle Community Center for the annual MLK Day of Service 2015. We will collect new and gently used books for all ages to help build a much needed library for the Del Valle community. Coming of Age will partner with local schools, neighborhoods, the City of Austin, NFBPA, Travis County community centers, and the Travis County Neighborhood Conference Committee (NCC) for this intergenerational   project.
