This grant was matched by Usborne Books for $500. “We were able to purchase over 200 books for grades K-6, said Zoe Asprey, Reading Specialist. “These books are a wonderful addition to our Library. The topics range from animals to science, the natural world and history. The hard cover books last much longer, and are filled with bright colorful pictures appropriate for all grades.” Zoe added:

“We are very grateful to Highline Schools Foundation for this generous grant.”
