Stonewall High School library asks for book gifts

The Stonewall Jackson High School library is running a book donation project until January 9, 2015.  The school library serves over 2400 students and 250 faculty and staff with limited available funding to purchase new books.

The “book tree project” includes a holiday tree on display in the library with paper ornaments that list student-requested book titles.  There are over 200 titles that students have requested – just within the last month. 

The library hopes that faculty, students, and community members will take an ornament or two, purchase the listed book, and donate it back to the library collection for the good of the school.  Each book collected will then be dedicated to someone of the donors’ choosing. 

So far the project has earned 27 new titles, but the library hopes for all 220 titles for the enjoyment of the students and faculty.  It’s difficult to get high school students to read, but heartbreaking to deny them a book because of a lack of funding, said the school’s librarian Micah Ziemski.

In-kind gifts and donations for the library and the schools’ new Book Club are sought as well.
