Welcome Back Students!
To Porter Students and Families,
I really missed seeing everyone! Now that we are back in school, you may return your library books and textbooks Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m.-3:00p.m. . If you cannot find them, please stop by the library to let me know so we can work together on it.
Our Porter Schools’ Care Closet is open for business! Stop by the library to visit the Care Closet for personal hygiene items graciously donated by kind citizens of Porter.
In the library, we have lots of new graphic novels, nonfiction books, series, and inspirational books. If you would like to add a book to our library collection to read, please email me your book requests- Title and Author.
Love, Mrs. Hamilton
