ALUMNI BOOK PROGRAM
The Alumni Book Program is one in which you can commemorate a student’s years at Laytonville High School in a special way and help our library collection continue to grow. Participation in the program involves a $25 donation per book. Most library books actually cost between $25 and $30.
For this donation, a book from the assortment of book catalogs in our library will be chosen by the student. The inside front cover of the book will have the student’s name and year of graduation on a bookplate.
Students have a special appreciation for the books they “select” to add to our library shelves. They enjoy sharing them with their classmates and teachers. These books will remain throughout all their years at Laytonville High School. This is a wonderful way to commemorate your very special student and to help our library maintain a high-quality collection
If you are interested in participating, please contact Janice at 984-6108 ext. #111. Checks should be made out to LHS Library and sent to LHS P.O. Box 868 c/o Janice Downes. Your generosity will benefit all of our students.
To help raise funds for our Laytonville High School library, the students and librarian are participating in an aluminum “Cans 4 Books” campaign. With budget cuts once again being the topic of many school meetings, the staffs of our schools are coming up with ways to reduce spending and increase revenue. Anyone interested in helping fund our high school library with much needed books, please bring your empty, aluminum cans to Janice at the high school library. The funds will go into our Alumni Book Program, which is also set up to receive cash donations to purchase books for our high school library too. Since the beginning of the "Cans-4-Books" campaign in Spring 2010, we have raised $800 towards books for our library. If you are interested in donating cash, please make checks out to LHS Library and send to LHS, P.O. Box 868 c/o Janice Downes. Your generosity will benefit all of our students. Thank you for your participation and support of our school library.
