Walnut Grove High School recently received more than 200 books for its media center, thanks to a grant from FirstBook and Communities In Schools.
FirstBook is a non-profit book distribution organization that works through other non-profits like Communities In Schools to make books accessible to all students. CIS of Walton County applied for a grant through First Books to make the donation possible.
"We need thousands of books to enhance our media center, and with the current funding, that's going to be tough," said Thomas Boutwell, principal of WGHS. "We appreciate this donation."
More books are needed. If you know of resources to provide library-quality books to WGHS please contact CIS Site Coordinator Michele Brignone at firstname.lastname@example.org.
