Students donate to book drive

Eitan Sneider ’17 held a book drive on campus for Access Books Feb. 1-5.

Access Books is an organization that focuses on providing books to students at inner-city elementary schools.

The book drive collected gently-used children’s books to be delivered to Woodcrest Elementary, where volunteers worked to set up a library on Saturday.

“It’s part of a bigger picture of addressing literacy as a whole,” Sneider said. “I’m working with an organization I started called Generation of Change.”

Donation boxes were stationed in the library and deans’ lounge, and the drive was held at multiple high schools in Los Angeles.

“It was something easy to do to make a difference, and logistically it was pretty simple to establish ourselves as an organization that just wants to make a change,” Sneider said.
