Donations for North Central High School Library in Kershaw County

Please help support the efforts to provide books and materials for the North Central High School library that was destroyed when a tornado hit Kershaw County this past weekend.  Julie Putnam, Media Services Coordinator for Kershaw County School District communicated the following to our SCASL President, Pam Williams, "We now have a plan in place.  We would greatly appreciate financial donations at this time.  Bambi Ferrer, the librarian, has developed a creative "mobile" library solution.  We anticipate that the NCHS library will be in a small space for the next 18 months in a facility with 3 separate buildings, so she is working on a solution that combines eBooks and rolling carts with newly purchased books for her collection."

Financial donations for North Central High School can be mailed or dropped off at the District Office as follows:
