Students seek book donations

You don’t need to judge a book by its cover to determine whether or not to donate it — unless it has no cover, or it’s a 50-year-old encyclopedia.

From Dr. Seuss books not read by anyone since your children were just learning how to read to textbooks last read on Sunday nights while cramming in college, Hillsboro Middle/High School is collecting old books for donation. Over 400 books have been collected in a few weeks with a goal of 1,000.

Donations were planned to go to areas affected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma. With an abundance of donations to affected areas, book drive organizer and senior Sonja Jost has also considered Better World Books, which collects and distributes donated books.

Books for donation can be taken to the media center at Hillsboro Middle/High School.
