Today we delivered 30-35 boxes of books to ET Steel School in the Nicetown section of Philadelphia.
Most of the books were donated to PCF by the American Association of Law Libraries and the Radnor School District. But a couple of the boxes came from a caring individual who leaves her Wells Fargo account manager mostly sports-related books that she picks up at flea markets and yard sales!
We were met at the school by Principal Mr. Jamal Dennis and a group of awesome 8th graders to assist in carrying the books into the school.
The books will be used both to ‘freshen’ their existing library and some for students to take home (depending on the books).
While we were there, we learned about the state of technology at Steel and have made plans to come back soon to install classroom computers and outfit an H&SA room they are putting together.
