Library Fundraiser!

LIBRARY FUNDRAISER:
March Madness at Mission Valley Library!  Beginning Monday, March 13 and ending Monday, March 27, we are having an online fundraiser to purchase new books for the library.  All the proceeds will be used for the purchase of books. This fundraiser is operated in collaboration with Perma-Bound Books, one of our main book suppliers. This will be a great opportunity to buy new books that students want to borrow from the library. I am also hoping to replace popular books that are damaged or in bad repair. The goal for the fundraiser is $1500. Donating is easy; just copy and paste the link below to your browser. The minimum donation is $10.

Thank you so much for supporting Mission Valley Library and helping us reach our goal!
