Algoma library supply drive backs local teachers

You can make a difference for local teachers by donating school supplies to the Algoma Public Library throughout August. Many teachers spend their own money to gather supplies for students who might not come to school with the things they need. Because of this, the Algoma Public library and Optimist club of Algoma host a Supply Drive and a Teacher Meet and Greet to help area teachers get ready for the year. Library Director Cathy Kolbeck says that they have received positive input and feedback from the teachers who participated in the program in the past.



The library asks that you help by donating school supplies such as scissors, loose-leaf paper, pencils, glue sticks, folders, and pink erasers. You have the opportunity to donate any supplies you might have through August 21st. The yearly Teacher Meet and Greet is used as an opportunity for teachers to come to the library and pick up supplies collected in the drive, talk to library staff about materials they need for their classrooms, and set up their classroom library cards. If all of the supplies are not collected by teachers, the library will directly donate them to parochial and public schools in the area.
