March is Quota Cares Month and Gridley's Quota Club donated $2,000 to the Friends of Literacy of the Butte County Library which provided funds for 1,005 books and their Literacy Coach. The Literacy Coach welcomed 4,658 visitors County-wide in 2016/17. "We are so honored and grateful to have Gridley’s Quota Club contribute to our efforts that encourages a foundation of reading in the home. Butte County Library, Literacy Services delights in sharing ways for families to engage children (age 0-5 years) in reading and writing that may not otherwise have access to the wonders of the library due to economic, geographical or language barriers. The picture books that Quota Club purchased will help build print-rich environments for families to enjoy together," Heather Tovey of Butte County Library stated.
