COMMUNITY VOICES - Books for teachers update
In the November 9 issue, I asked for your help in donating books requested by Medford School District teachers. Since then, I’ve learned that one party was considering donating as a dedication all the copies of a book thought most appealing. I hadn’t thought of that way of participating! If there’s one or more books you or your organization most prefer, you could donate all, or even some of the copies of the requested title. Some publishers limit the number of copies of one title sold to individuals but allow sales of higher numbers to schools. If you encounter such a limit, the District will have to place the order.
