How to help @ CSMS Library/Learning Commons

  • Book Donations

    The CSMS Library/Learning Commons welcomes donations of your unwanted books.  Donated books will be added to the collection if they are in great shape and meet the selection criteria.  Any books not added to the collection will be offered to teachers for classroom libraries, sold or traded during upcoming books swaps, or otherwise disposed of. 

    In addition, please check out the two wish lists below for some books that the students of CSMS would particularly love to have.
