Mesa Elementary Book Drive Grows!

Thank you to everyone that has donated to help Mesa Elementary in Shiprock, New Mexico rebuild their school library. The library was torched by arson on September 12.

Our goal is to restock it better than ever!

Thanks to you we have already shipped over 800 books and have raised $1,200 which will be used to buy Navajo-language children’s books.

Reader to Reader has pledged $50,000 worth of books to rebuild the library. We will be sending books from our inventory and are seeking donations of new and gently used children’s books.

“It is extremely heartwarming that you are coming to our aid in our time of need,” said Mesa Elementary principal, Pandora Mike. “I am completely floored and it brings me to tears. Our hearts will be touched forever.”

Interested donors are asked to contact Reader to Reader at 413-256-8595 or email Donors can also donate funds to Reader to Reader to buy books in the Navajo language and for other specialized needs they have. 100% of the funds donated for the book drive will be used to rebuild the library. Donations can be made online as well. (Online donations should note Mesa Elementary.) Please make checks payable to Reader to Reader and write “Mesa Library” on the detail line. Your donations will be tax deductible.

Donations of books should be sent to:
