9,000 books for teachers!

August 28, 2011

This weekend our very good friends and partners at Mission Based Books, held a second Court’s Kids/Mission Based Teacher Book Giveaway. On Saturday, August 27th, at 10am they opened up their warehouse to area teachers. We have been working for weeks to get the word out, and it worked…around 50 teachers showed up and about 9,000 books were hauled away!

Teachers digging through mounds of free books!

In time for school to begin, these teachers will have their classroom libraries refreshed and ready. We had teachers from all walks, kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and on into high school and even a few home school teachers and reading specialists. Our friends at Mission Based Books did an amazing job of preparing a welcoming and fun environment and were incredibly generous. If you are on the hunt for used books and want to support a good company, this is one to trust.

More digging!

Thank you to the team at Mission Based Books from the team at Court’s Kids! In the height of budget cutbacks we’re helping ensure kids have classroom libraries.

Little by little,
