T.E.A.M. Teach Gives Back (Pack) Challenge! See you Tuesday 12/6!

This holiday season we will be reaching out to the community by doing our 5th annual backpack drive. I challenge you to work with a group of people to fund and purchase a backpack filled with school supplies. We will be collecting the backpacks at our last huddle on December 8th from noon-12:50 and backpack providers will get on our priority textbook checkout list for the spring! The past few years we have gone from 40 donated backpacks to 52 donated backpacks to 61 donated backpacks to 81 backpacks that we were able to get to students in our local schools. The challenge this year is to get to 100 or more backpacks! You can see pictures from last year above!


Textbook Check-In Hours....Return  Your Books!

We will have staff ready to collect your textbooks that you checked out this semester next to our check-out room in the library on the days and times listed below. Please remember that you cannot check books out for the spring unless you turn in your books from the fall semester. All T.E.A.M. Teach members can check out up to 3 books based on availability and we are happy to take your donations at the end of this semester and get them out to other T.E.A.M. Teach members in the spring. Here are the check-in hours!

Tuesday, December 13th from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
