Expansion of Our School Library to Start This Fall! Help Us Build an Updated Collection with a Book Donation!

We are slated for library expansion this fall due to a change in the construction schedule. Over the next three months, the library will be undergoing a renovation that will add 728 sq. ft. of area to the eastern side of our library. Help us get new books on the shelves!

What titles do we need? View wish lists on Amazon searching its wish lists tool by El Dorado Community School Library or look for links to our Amazon wish lists on this blog on different page sections. You will find lists for various areas in our collection. Choose from new titles compiled from current review literature or from titles requested by our students. Acquire a highly recommended title for your child from these lists and then donate it after reading!

If you use Amazon for other purchases or holiday shopping, please consider using our widget to search for an item. The widget will take you into Amazon, then from there login and place orders. A minimum of 4% of any sale shipped through Amazon will be automatically deposited into our library program fund through our participation in Amazon Associates!

And if you prefer to shop local through an independent bookseller, consider Garcia Street Books. The new owners, Françoise Paheau and Zaïre Benhadje, who are also Eldorado residents, are offering a 20% discount off publisher list prices for any books purchased for our collection drive by our community. Please visit their web site for book events, contact information, and a new online ordering feature coming soon this fall.

Thank you for helping us build a great library – book by book!
