Books on Wheels reaches its 2010 goal of providing over 10,000 books to local non-profits

Hello Friends!

Books on Wheels is excited to announce that we have gone beyond our goal by providing 11,665 books to local organizations in 2010. We are very grateful to have worked with over 45 organizations in providing free books and free bicycle repair this year, and are gearing up for the new year to do even more! As always, thank you for your support and dedication to our small non-profit in accomplishing this goal and continuing to grow in 2011.
