Our #1 Book Collector Marie Rodden!

A very special thanks goes out to Marie Rodden, who single-handedly collected hundreds of books for our drive. She secured donations from our public libraries, raided her own book collection, and went around to thrift shops and book stores to find books. She brought in a set of 2005 World Book Encylopedias for our school in Botswana. Ours are from 1998! SHE IS AWESOME!!!

Also, many thanks to Tamika Nelson and the staff of Amos Cottage for collecting books for us!!!!!

Global Connections

Since we are a global studies school, we hope to gain more from this experience than just collecting books. This will increase our awareness as we learn what life is like in such a remote area of Africa.
