Help us stock, set up and inventory books for the Westerly Hills Christmas Bookapalooza on December 18. You can also help provide books for our students. Our goal is to provide three books for every student. Drop by the table on Sunday mornings through Dec. 16 to check out the list of books recommended by their teachers, make your selections and we’ll purchase at a discount from Scholastic Books. Students will be able to choose their own books at the holiday book fair. Or make your gift online and we’ll take care of buying the books.
