IACS Library is accepting used book donations! We will sort through and keep what we can use

and put the rest into our brand new GOT BOOKS container. The container is a fundraiser for the Library
and with it; we hope to raise enough to purchase more MP3 Players for audiobooks that students can
check out from the Library. Any early elementary or books that you sense are not appropriate for either

the Middle or High School section of our library, can be dropped directly into the bin which is located
on the High School side, next to the school. The bin accepts used books, CDs, DVDs & records. Got
Books pays us for these donations! Please note that the librarian is not able to access the bin,

so if your intention is to donate books to the school, please be sure to bring the books to the
library. If you have any questions, please contact Heather Landis at (978) 649-0432 ext.: 1208 or email: Thank you!

Although much delayed the IACA wants to say thank you to the wonderful 5/6 grade dance chaperones,
We had 180 student turn out, , the largest to date. Due to the commitment of the volunteer parents, DJ
and teacher the dance was a Hugh success.

Happy Thanksgiving, Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Weekend!
