The Madrona Community Council (MCC) is teaming up with Madrona K8 to refresh their library over the summer and is kicking off the First Annual “60 Books in 60 Days” Book Drive starting on July 1. Anne Machonis, the MK8 school librarian, has created an amazon.com wish list (see link below) with a variety of new book selections to help round out their current collection. Please consider purchasing a book or two as many on the list are less than $10. Go to:
Because of the community’s generous donations during Madrona Mayfair, the MCC was able to purchase a set of the 2013 Washington’s Children’s Choice Book Awards books for Madrona K-8 School to complement the book drive. The Washington’s Children’s Choice Book Awards are 20 books, selected and voted in as winners by Washington State students.
