Pickerington Elementary Community Survey

Book Grab N Go!

Free Books!

We are downsizing our guided reading book collection, and have a plethora of books we would like to get into the hands of our community members. We have already given our teachers and students a chance to choose books but there are so many still! If you are a teacher, aspiring teacher, or even a parent who would like to get some new books for your children, we would love to share the wealth of books with you.

Please stop by anytime between 9AM and 2PM next week, 5/23-5/27 to look through the books and take what you would like.

775 Long Road, Pickerington
