826LA Mar Vista Amazon Wishlist
Support Reading and Decompression Time during After-School Tutoring! Students enter our Writing Lab every day in search of their next favorite book! Help us update our library by reviewing our Amazon book wishlist. All books on the wishlist have been added by students in our tutoring programs. Click here to visit our Amazon Wishlist! You can also support students by donating art, photography, writing, or youth-based magazines, or zines you may have lying around. During Decompression Time, students chill out after a long day of reading and writing. We would like to fill our space with fun and creative activities for students.
