Many of you know that we will be building and stocking a library for an elementary school in Guatemala next year. This school does not currently have a library, so our efforts will be deeply appreciated! My original goal was 300 books, but I think that number will be surpassed. Although we’re still a good 10 months away, I’ve already begun collecting and have 54 Spanish (or bilingual) books in my stash!
Do you have any Spanish or bilingual children’s books that you’d like to donate (or sell on the cheap)? The school serves children up to age 13, and I’m sure they’d be interested in any books targeting that age range.
If not, I came across another avenue this morning that I intend to follow. Scholastic is teaming up with Walmart to offer grocery shoppers an opportunity to earn free books after purchasing participating products: Hershey, Coca-Cola, Kellogg’s and Smuckers. For every product from the list you buy, you get one free book, limit 90! When selecting your free book, there is a tab just for Spanish/bilingual so it’s easy to do!
If you buy groceries at Walmart, please consider doing this for us.
