MANY MANY THANKS to the Snapdragon Book Foundation for their generous support of our school library!

In the summer of 2021, they donated 366 new, hardbound books to our collection. If you see their logo sticker inside the book you are enjoying, you know that it was a gift from Snapdragon. You can support the Snapdragon Book Foundation's mission to improve school libraries with a donation to their website
