Book Drive for AHS English Dep’t

The English teachers at Ashland High School are looking to expand their classroom libraries through donations. These classroom libraries are designed to give students access to books of their choice outside of the traditional library setting. The kids really appreciate having these teacher collections in their classrooms so they can read these books during SSR (sustained silent reading) and borrow the books to bring home. Up to this point, teachers have purchased all of the books for their classroom libraries with their own money.

If you have any gently used Young Adult or Adult books, classics, or non-fiction books, please drop them off at the box set up in the high school office. Newer books by authors like Malcolm Gladwell, John Green, Jodi Piccoult, and Sarah Dessen are the books the kids are especially desperate to read. Thank you!
