For many years, the Reading/Writing Center has collected books for Longfellow School. From Nov. 27-Dec. 15, we will again be accepting donations of new or like-new (undamaged, unmarked) children's books for ages 4 to 12.
Donated books may be sent to the Reading/Writing Center through campus mail or dropped off during open hours: 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Friday; and 7-9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday.
Or, contact Lucas Street and he will send someone to your office to pick up your books. All books should be in to the Reading/Writing Center no later than noon Dec. 15.
The books find their ways into classroom collections as well as incentives and gifts for the children during the rest of the school year. Last year we collected 346 books, more than enough to allow each child at Longfellow to choose one to keep with some left over for school use.
