Free Books! Take Your Pick! (Lally’s Literati Update)

Special thanks to the Used Book Superstore in Burlington who ran a promotion in October where they were basically giving books away to teachers – and because of that promotion, Lally’s Literati has a lot of books to give away. First of all, for the uninitiated, Lally’s Literati is a program where students request specific books, authors, or genres, and the English Department will find books to match their request. The department picks up the cost (up to $5) and the student pays the rest, if needed.

To sign up, CLICK HERE (or click on the tab under RESOURCES in the header bar)

Now, on to the specifics – The Literati have picked up the following titles. If you are interested, put in a request, and the books will get distributed as the requests come in. We have multiple copies of some titles, so don’t be shy if you see someone else has requested the same book. And requests will be honored as fairly as possible, with top priority going to our newest members. And now…
