Do you love books? Do you like to help others? The Clippers do and hope you will, too. In Arlington elementary schools, some kids don’t have books of their own. We are going to set up bookshelves in these schools where students can pick out books they can keep. If you have a book you liked in elementary school, but is too young for you now, please bring it in to donate. Look for collection boxes in the halls and place your book in the box. The Clippers will make sure the books get to the kids who need a book of their own.
