Can you help? We need a few good books for Yupik students
in Alaska. David Zick, son of our West Stockbridge neighbors John and Karen,
teaches grades 7-12 at Savoonga School, just above the Artic Circle. He reports
no library on the island and only a handful of books at the school. WSPL is
promoting a book drive to help fill the shelves at the school. Just drop off
suitable books (preferably light-weight paperbacks) at the library and we’ll
mail them at our discount rate. Thank you for helping make a real difference in
the lives of our distant neighbors.
