It’s new to you! Please support the THES library by purchasing used books for just 50 cents each during the Used Book Fair in the Thunderbird library. If you have some free time on Monday, October 1, we could also use some help taking library inventory and setting up for the fair. Please contact Mrs. Underwood to sign up!
