Book donations needed!!!!

Would you like to help a child read this summer? If so, then please send in any new or gently used books that you’d like to donate. We are hoping to send a book and suggested reading list home with every child this summer. We’ll also need volunteers to help sort the books into grade levels. If you’d like to help with that process, please contact our Literacy Coach, Jen Neal, at Jennifer.neal@onslow.k12.nc.us.


Books may be dropped off in the office at any point. Thank you in the advance.
