HONOR A TEACHER and Support the Library with Buy a Book

If you would like to recognize a staff member at Bigelow this holiday season, please consider donating a book in a staff member’s name to the library. A nameplate honoring the teacher, and recognizing the donor, will be placed inside a new book.   Click Here to Buy a Book.

The Bigelow Library is a vibrant and exciting learning commons. Students visit daily to find a good book to read. Maintaining a library collection of both fiction and nonfiction books to meet the reading interest of our students is always a priority.  The Buy a Book Fund  is a wonderful way to meet this demand so that the library can maintain its vibrancy.

Thank you to all parents and families who have donated to The Buy a Book Fund  in the past.   Your generosity is deeply appreciated.
