Book Distribution

 We work to ensure that students in Shafter have regular, convenient access to books.  Toward that end, we distribute more than 10,000 new books to students every year. We also fund summer access to the Redwood Elementary library and expanded hours at the Shafter Branch of the Kern County Library all year.  Our annual survey of student book ownership indicates that the median number of books in Richland student homes has increased by nearly 40% since 2011.
