Fall4Reading Book Drive

Fall4Reading Book Drive
Attention families: The LNS PTO is running a school-wide book drive on campus and we need your gently used or new children’s books! Please take some time to clear out cluttered shelves of books your child has read or outgrown, so that we may give those books a second life with a child who needs them. What types of books?
Pre-school? Yes!
Elementary? Yes!
Middle School chapter books? Yes!
Grandma’s cookbooks? NOT so much!
Middle school books and chapter books are most needed! Followed by Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dr. Suess, Geronimo Stilton, Mo Willems, Magic Tree House, Fly Guy, etc.
When and where to bring books:
Starting Monday, October 29th:
Drop off the books with this completed form in the following 3 locations: Home Room Teacher or English teacher, Library/Media Center or at the Drop Box in the front office.
Friday, November 9th:
The Bug is coming! Fall4Reading Kickoff Day with National Hockey League Tampa Bay Lightning mascot, ThunderBug!! ThunderBug will visit LNS during lunchtime to present reading awards and deliver special Fall4Reading bookmarks to students. ThunderBug LOVES to read!
Friday, November 16th:
Fall4Reading BookSwap Day! Last day to drop off a book donation and the completed form. The Book Swap happens all day long in the Media Center.
$1 PTO fundraiser during the book swap: When the students donate $1 they will receive a special Fall4Reading bookmark, a chance to meet ThunderBug, and participate in the BookSwap. During the book swap students will pick 1 to 5 books depending on the total number of books they donate:
If they donate 5 or more books then they get to select 5 books to bring home.
If the donate 4 books then they get to select 4 books to bring home.
If they donate 3 books then they get to select 3 books to bring home.
If they donate 2 books then they get to select 2 books to bring home.

It’s going to be a Fantastic Friday!
A volunteer posse will be needed! At least 10-20 rotating positions. Please contact Pam Taylor at [email protected] if you are able to help out. Thank you!
