Media Center: Will You Help?

Help the media center purchase a special set of library books especially geared toward middle school interests. For every $20 you donate, a hardback AR book will be personalized for the Mars Hill collection. To donate, click here.

Students will love exploring these high-interest titles with fun topics, full-cover photographs, and cool facts.
