June 19, 2003

Please help us make the 5th Annual Books for Children drive a success this year by donating books for elementary school children in Seattle. The recipient this year is First Place School, the education component of a social service agency serving children and families in transition in Seattle. The children attending this school are coming from situations involving domestic violence, alcohol and drug dependency, and homelessness. To learn more about the school visit their website (http://www.firstplaceschool.org/).

First Place School serves children aged 5 to 14 years old, in kindergarten through 7th grade. The school librarian has provided us with a wish list of needed items:

  1. graphic novels (these are stand-alone stories in comics form, published as a book)(See Berkeley Public Library Teen Services List of Graphic Novels, http://www.infopeople.org/bpl/teen/graphic.html, OR Graphic Novel Title List, http://www.teencybercenter.org/lists/titles.htm)
  2. fiction and non-fiction for young adults (junior high age students)
  3. intermediate (not college) level English dictionaries
  4. basic foreign language dictionaries (Spanish-English; French-English etc.)
