books, books, books & eBooks


Getting physical and eBooks into the hands of our Briones Bobcats is a priority for PTA this year!  As we continue to support each other, as we did this past spring and summer, we would like to collaborate on our next project:  Books, Books, Books, & eBooks!

YOU:  YES!  I love books and want to get more in my child’s hands!  What can I do to help?

US:  Thanks for asking!  Here are the ways you can help!

Go through your bookshelves and pull all the books your child has outgrown and pack them up! Bring those books to school and drop them off in the box by the front office labeled Book Donations. 

PTA would happily take your donation to our Library to help fund eBooks subscriptions and purchase books to restock the depleted teacher libraries that got sent out last year.  Click here to make a donation:  Donate to the Library!

More info about the next book drive will be posted here!
