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. With this donation, a book is chosen by the student (or parent) and a bookplate is placed on the inside of the front cover with their name and graduation year. Students have a special appreciation for the books they select to add to our library shelves. They enjoy sharing them with their class mates and teachers. These books will remain throughout all their years at LHS. 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, librarian and staff are participating in an aluminum “Cans 4 Books” campaign. Anyone interested in helping fund our high school library may bring their 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. Since the beginning of the "Alumni Book Fund" (2004) and the "Cans-4-Books" (2010), we have raised over $5,288 towards books for our library. Thank you for your participation and support of our school library.
