Hialeah-Opa-Locka Lodge No. 391 Promotes Literacy within Inner City Communities

Boxes and boxes of books oh my! What to do with so many books? Donate them to a good cause and give back to the community.

The Brothers with the book donations

The Brothers of Hialeah-Opa-Locka Lodge No. 391 spent the month of March collecting books from friends, family and co-workers to coordinate their annual BOOKLEGGERS Book Drive.

About 300 books were collected and donated to BOOKLEGGERS Library in Miami, FL. The organization is a mobile library that sets up rotating venues once a month and distributes free books to the public.

One of the organization’s goals is to promote literacy in inner city neighborhoods which has led to the installation of a series of book boxes in certain areas in and around Miami. People can visit the book boxes and browse for free or drop off books.
