Some of you will remember the fire in 2007 at Peralta. We had to finish out the year at another location. The courtyard was destroyed as was the library. We received many many book donations to re-establish the library from families at several neighboring schools. I recently learned that Sankofa, a neighboring school, does not have a library. A community organization, Good Cents for Schools, is working to build their library and get funding to support a part-time librarian.

Let's help Sankofa out! Please donate lightly used or new books. Suggestions for books include: Judy Moody, Ivy and Bean, Frog and Toad, Geronimo Stilton, Magic Tree House, A to Z Mysteries, Goosebumps. Easy reader books, DK Eyewitness books.

Please contact Irene Yen, ihyen AT earthlink DOT net, if you'd like to donate!
