LIBRARY BOOK DONATION WEBSITE

Many people love to donate books to the library, and we love receiving them! In order to make donating an easier process for everyone, we have set up a donation website. This website has a wishlist that was created specifically for the the HJM Library. These are books that we need and the students want. All you have to do to donate is visit the website. You can choose a book, and the best part is you can also add a donation plate that will be placed inside the book. All books donated through the website will be mailed directly to the HJM library ready to be placed on the shelf.

***Our goal is to reach $2,000 in donations before we get out for the Christmas break.
So far we have just over $200 in donations.

So, get those credit cards out and Happy Donating!

THANKSGIVING IS ALMOST HERE AND TURKEYS ARE LOOKING FOR A DISGUISE!

HJM students will be participating in an at home family project. While at the library this November, students will listen to a story about a turkey who does not want to get eaten for Thanksgiving. As a result, the turkey comes up with a disguise to hide himself away. Students will be given the opportunity to disguise a turkey at home with their families. The students will return the decorated turkeys to school to be judged!

Be on the look out for Turkeys! That is if they are not in hiding!


BOOKS ARE JUST THE BEGINNING
