Book Drive

Emily DiMatteo is running a children’s book drive for Books Are Wings now through October 14. The collection box is located in the gym lobby.

Books Are Wings, a nonprofit, aims to close the literacy gap by providing students free age appropriate books that they select themselves. Early access to books is critical to successful reading development. To learn more visit https://www.booksarewings.org/donate-books/


All new and gently used books for children—from babies to high school—are welcome. Often the book you are donating will be the only book this child owns. Please bring in any children’s books that you no longer need and Emily will deliver them to Books Are Wings. Thank you.
