Tri-City Ecology Center makes annual book donation
Submitted By Gail Blalock
The Tri-City Ecology Center continued its long tradition of donating books to the five county libraries in the Tri-City area. Its recent 40th annual book donation included 21 titles, eleven for children and teens and ten for adults. The books were recently on display at the Fremont Main Library lobby.
Books for adults include "Four Fish" by Paul Greenberg, "Toxic Free" by Debra Lynn Dadd, "World Changing" by Bill McKibben and Alex Steffen, and "Genius of Place, Fredrick La Olmsted" by Justin Martin. The donation also included a beautifully illustrated book for birders - "Alameda County Breeding Bird Atlas" written by members of the Audubon Society who are Alameda County residents.
The children's books feature "Hot Planet for Cool Kids" by Julie Hall, "Hello Bumblebee Bat" by Darrin Lunde, "Into the Deep, True Story of Explorer William Beebe" by David Shelton, and "Jo MacDonald Saw a Pond" by Mary Quattlebaum.
Over the years, the Ecology Center has donated approximately $40,000 in books, videos, and DVDs to the Fremont, Newark, and Union City county libraries. This is the longest-running program in the Center's 40-year history thanks to the generous donations from members and income from fundraisers. Suggestions for future donations are always welcome at www.tricityecology.org. Stop by your local county library and check these books out!
