Remote Learning Memo
Alden Middle School Library
- Battle of the Books participants: While our competition is sadly cancelled, I encourage you to keep reading the books! Plans are to reschedule our competition dates for next school year, when we return to school. If you'd like to return the books until the competition starts again next year, you can return them along with other library books. If you'd like to keep the copy you are reading; e-mail me at email@example.com and I will renew them for the next school year.
- FREE BOOKS! A cart of new books (all free to a good home) is now available in the entrance to the middle school. It will be accessible whenever the office is open. These books are donations for your use! Feel free to keep them for your own library, or better yet, pass them along to another reader!
