BCS Book Harvest:  Tuesday 11/15 -Tuesday 11/22

It’s time again for the BCS Book Harvest to support the Childrens’ Book Bank. The Book Bank is a wonderful non-profit that collects, cleans, bundles and distributes books locally so that all children can have books of their own.

How you can help:

Gather new or gently used picture books, board books, graphic novels and early reader chapter books. Bring your donations to the signed collection bins at the school’s front entrance.

Email Christy Robertson or Jane Comeault with questions.
