Books, Books, Who’s Got Books?

If your children are getting tired of some of their picture books or you have some MG or Ya novels lying around and don’t know what to do with them, don’t toss them just yet.  The Pittsburgh Manchester School District K-8 School is in dire need of good fiction for children. There were only 50 fiction books suitable for children in the school library!  LAURIE HALSE ANDERSON  has posted the information on her live journal blog post from 9-23-2012 with the address of where to send the books and some titles that are on the school’s wish list. If your local library is getting rid of books, ask if they’ll donate them to the school as well.
