Donate Books & Supplies

We are building our library and are always looking for new titles to add to our collection of high-interest texts. If you have some quality books to give away, please stop by! 

We go through hundreds of sticky notes and index cards every month and are always seeming to run out of whiteboard markers. If you have some extra school supplies lying around, we promise we will love them well.
