Legacy of Literacy – 2018

A big THANK YOU to all the generous members of the Greater Placer communities who donated an amazing 1800 books to our Legacy of Literacy Book Drive! The books will be donated to area programs to help improve literacy in Placer County.


Along with 120 Assistance League chapters across the country, Assistance League Greater Placer is participating in an annual Legacy of Literacy event to make a transformative difference in the future of all children by promoting literacy.

In support of this event, we are collecting new and gently used books for children Kindergarten to 3rd grade until February 23rd at locations within our community.  Click here to see the locations. Monetary donations for the purchase of books will also be accepted.
