Library News

Wednesday, May 18th & Thursday, May 19th

Do you have gently-used student-appropriate fiction/nonfiction books taking up space on your bookshelves?

Want to donate them?

We would like them for our used book sale that will happen

on May 18th & 19th. All books will be sold for $0.50 each.

It will be a win-win-win situation for all.

You get to clean out your bookshelves, students get to purchase books at a cheap price and new items will be added to the library.

We are collecting now until May 13th. You can drop them off in the front office or send them with your student(s).

Friday, May 20th - All SC library books need to be returned.

Monday, May 23rd - Friday, May 27th - Looking for something to do this week? We would love to have a few volunteers (1-2 hours) help us with our inventory. If interested, please email Mrs. McGovern @ A Level 3 background check is required to volunteer.

Due to all they learned, they wanted to create a fundraiser for the Humane Society for Hamilton County. They will be collecting new and used items starting Friday, May 20th at the Stony Creek Carnival until Friday, May 27th. Feel free to drop off or send items with your student to the Stony Creek library during the week of May 23rd. Please see the attached flyer.
