School District 51 book giveaway this week
District 51 will hosts its annual book giveaway from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday in the gym at Grand Mesa Middle School, 585 31 1/2 Road.
The event changes location each year but continues its mission — to allow people to peruse stacks of books, collect as many as they want and haul them away for free.
The library books and textbooks on display at the giveaway are collected from schools across District 51 who no longer need the books because of book and material updates. The books span a variety of reading levels and subject matter.
Participants are encouraged to bring boxes or bags to the event in which to lug away their new reading material.
