Books Needed!

Our Cary Elementary Bookstop needs Early Reader, grade K-2 books.bookstop

Our younger students LOVE buying their books at the Bookstop but we are running very low on this type of book. The Bookstop works like a bookstore, but students use Bookbucks to purchase books. The books your child brings home from school that have yellow, red, blue, or green stickers on them are from the Bookstop.  Please remind your children that they will get Bookbucks for any book they return to the Bookstop — so they can buy more books!!

Please search for gently used and recent books to donate.  You can send them with your child and when they bring them to the Bookstop they will get Bookbucks in return.

The Bookstop is open Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8-9.

If you have any questions, please email Margot at
