Over 5,000 used books were donated as part of the ISD’s 50th anniversary celebration. Teachers from nearly every district in the county could select books to use in the classroom.

Nearly 7,000 new books have been distributed to schools, and $4,500 in cash donations will be used to purchase new books for classroom use.

Teachers will get another chance to select books on March 25.
