Spring cleaning is a great time to donate items your family has outgrown, including gently used books.

The middle school library is currently accepting books through May 9, that appeal to fifth- through eighth-graders.

Books will be used to create a book mall for students and their parents to peruse during a special family literacy night scheduled for May 19. Stay tuned for details about the event, which is being organized by the Let's Get Started reading initiative committee.  

Volunteers are also being sought to sort through the donations from 7:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. If you would like to help or have any questions, please contact Schalmont Middle School Librarian Linda Fasano at 518-355-6255 x 2074, or
