During these uncertain times brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, we hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy.
To ensure we do our part in protecting you, the Solano County Library Foundation is cancelling all of our in-person events and fundraisers during 2020. We are working to bring you virtual events, so please check back on this website often. It is our sincere hope that our normal fundraising activities can resume as usual in 2021. Until then, be assured that our goal of “Lighting the Path to Literacy” continues with our support of Solano County Library’s Literacy Programs online. To illustrate these programs we have provided two videos which explain how both Reach Out and Read and Tutor.com work to benefit Solano County citizens.
Now, more than ever, Solano County Library Foundation needs its supporters to renew their financial gifts for the Foundation and its work. We hope that you continue to support our mission to create a brighter future for our community by supporting the literacy programs of the Solano County Library. To do so please click below, call (707) 421-8075 or send donations and memberships to Solano County Library Foundation, 601 Kentucky St., Fairfield, CA, 94533. Thank you for your generosity and continued support.
The Solano County Library Foundation received $10,000 from Board of Directors member, Dr. Ash Varma in support of Reach Out And Read. Reach Out and Read gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together.
Your donations during this matching grant period and throughout the year help us to continue to support literacy activities in Solano County.
In 2017, Navalta created the Robby Poblete Foundation in honor of her son, Robby, who was killed by gun violence in Vallejo in 2014. The nonprofit’s mission is to reduce gun violence through its gun buyback program, and transform the weapons into instruments of hope and opportunity through its art and vocational programs. In just under two years, the foundation has succeeded in getting nearly 1,000 firearms out of circulation, launched its Art of Peace program, which transforms the guns into art, in five cities, and has distributed more than $20,000 in apprenticeship scholarships to people from at-risk and high-risk populations.
Help us build and strengthen these programs that support literacy in Solano County:
