GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Our 13 Reads literacy initiative took on an exciting new project, and many people in West Michigan helped. . 

Libraries are about more than just books. They offer many services and ways to stay connected to people who may not have those resources. But there are still many who have trouble getting access to the library. That’s where the Grand Rapids Public Library’s Mobile Library comes in. Taking the library and all it has to offer to underserved areas of the community, making library programs and materials available to people for whom “access” is an issue. The library wants to expand the service area for their mobile unit  

At 13 ON YOUR SIDE we are committed to literacy, so from April 18 until May 3, we held a fundraising blitz to support the mobile library. 

West Michigan helped us raise $15,376 for the mobile library!
