Recently, the library received a charitable surprise. Mrs. Scruggs discovered a website called Donor’s Choose, an online organization that funds requests from schools all over the country. From books for the library to microscope slides for biology class, this organization allows anyone to donate money towards helping schools get the resources they need. People choose a project request that interests them, and they can donate any amount of money that they want towards the cause.
Mrs. Scruggs entered her request and donations were met by charitable people across the country. Because of their donations the Walker High School library was able to obtain 31 new books. Some of these books include the recently popular series Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard.
Among the authors are James Patterson, Laurie Halse Anderson, and Sharon M. Draper. A list of the donor’s names plus a packet of personalized thank you notes will be sent to Mrs. Scruggs so she will be able to thank these charitable people.
Thanks to the signs made by library aids, these books are catching the eyes of students and already being checked out. Walker High School is very thankful to the donators and their help to better our school.
