Earlier this week, Strawn ISD was fortunate enough to be gifted multiple NEW books for our library. Today they were made available to the students and most were check out before lunch! The series received were Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dog Man, Cat Kid, and Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales. These books span the interest levels of Kindergarten through 8th grade. We are so grateful for this generous gift of books that our students have been requesting and are very excited to see them checked out so quickly! Thank you to Meghan Carter, Stacie Frye, Venessa VanWinkle Hobbs, Brenda Lingle, Penny Lingle, Sarah Lingle & her two boys (Hayes & Tyson), Jack Reyna, and one anonymous donor for giving the gift of reading!
