Want to donate treats for teachers for the long conference days?
Gently used book drive
The Black Hawk Media Center is hosting a gently used book give away during conferences, Feb. 9-10.
We are looking for donations of books that are appropriate for middle school students and are in good condition. If you have books that are at the elementary level, we’d appreciate a few of those for younger family members that might be with older siblings at conferences.
Students can bring donated books to the library, or families can drop them off in the main office between now and Feb. 9. Be sure to visit the library during conferences to choose books “new to you." Thank you for your generosity and for creating a culture of reading! Book fairs will return next year.
If you have any questions, please contact our media specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org.
