FEM held its 1st Book Drive as an event to go with Read Across America and Dr. Seuss’ birthday.
All of the donated books have been counted and here are the results:
A total of 1,428 books were donated by FEM students, their families and our staff. There were two top donating classes: Ms. Tanner’s 2nd graders with 190 donated books and Ms. Smith’s 3rd graders with 191 donated books. What a paw-some everyone! The top donating classes will receive treats for all of their hard work. As your librarian I just want to say how proud I am that FEM loves books so much that they understand the need to share them with others who will really love them too. The books that were collected will be going to the children at The Shriner’s Hospital. Thank you for everyone’s support and cooperation. Hopefully this is the first of a new tradition to add to FEM’s Wall of Pride.
