Sharing the Love of Reading

Last weekend Bosque School’s Harry Potter Alliance chapter gave away books at the 5th annual Albuquerque CiQlovia. CiQlovia is a free community event in the International District, where the neighborhood is invited to walk, bike, and play on the closed street filled with activities. Eight of our group members volunteered and helped distribute books.

The International District is a very diverse sector of Albuquerque, consisting of people from all walks of life. There were people young and old, speaking many languages, and enjoying their community. Over 300 books were given out, most of which were children’s books. Everyone was thrilled with the idea of free books, especially books they could read to their children. The event was a wonderful display of community and the Harry Potter Alliance was very happy to be there.
