Book donations and end of year book checkout

A Message from our Librarian:

If you have any books you would like to donate to our year end book swap in the library, I am taking donations. This event will be happening in library class (K-4th grade) on the last full week of school.

In addition, the last day for students to check out book in our library is Monday June 3. After that, all books need to be returned so that I can inventory the library. If you cannot find the book, please contact me so we can make arrangements to clear up your child's account.

Thank you.
Ms. Lee
