Earlier this month, Modern Woodmen donated $1,500 to North Creek Elementary to fund the purchase of additional upper-level elementary books for the school library.

Librarian Stacy Branam is working on an expansion of the school’s library collection to include a section of young adult books catered to fourth and fifth grade students.

Students from the North Creek Elementary Book Club traveled to Half Price Books last Friday to hand-select the titles that will make up this new section of their school library. With the $1,500 donation from Modern Woodmen, the students were able to purchase over 300 gently-used hardback books.
