Recycle & Read

Coming Soon to the Library!

What Is Recycle & Read?

What is Recycle & Read, you might ask? Throughout the school year, the MJS Community updates their bookshelves by setting aside gently used books and sending them to the Library. What types of books, you wonder? Any and all gently used books: pre-school, elementary, middle and high school, and adult books. If you have a shelf of books you would like to part with and pass along to other eager readers, place them into small boxes or sturdy bags, label them "LIBRARY", and drop them off at MJS.
