Thank you to Gause Boosters for donating over $1500 in children’s books to the Gause Elementary School library. When Boosters volunteers learned that the library was in need of new reading materials, they used fundraising dollars from the book fair to replenish the library and replace lost, stolen, or damaged books that had been checked out of the Gause library. The Boosters help to make sure that Gause students have reading materials to match many grade levels and interests available to them for free in the library. Thank you, Boosters!!
