Help us update the library books in our three school campus libraries. Librarians Sue Ann Brewer and Val Brown explain why your donations can make a real difference in the education of our students… and encourage a lifelong love of reading.
A library collection is like a garden. It needs constant weeding and feeding to give our students the resources to support their learning and independent reading.
The elementary collection averages 20 years and the secondary library averages 21 years. As our collection ages we are not able to replace books at the rate we discard dated and worn books.
Sturdy library-quality books average $25 per book. To see some of the books that the Library Specialists would like to purchase, click here.
Please select how many books you would like to have purchased with your donations. You may also make a specific donation.

Come join us! We’re looking to add members to our South Whidbey Schools Foundation Board.
If you would like to help support our local public schools, we invite you to learn more about us. We usually meet once a month on a Saturday morning at the South Whidbey Community Center. (During the pandemic we are meeting via Zoom online).
Board members serve three-year terms and help plan and produce two to three community outreach events a year. We laugh a lot, love being positively productive, and take satisfaction in rolling up our sleeves and getting a task done. Best of all, we make a difference in the lives of students in the South Whidbey School District. Contact Shelly Ackerman, our Board President at SWSF@whidbey.com for more information.
Consider leaving a legacy gift to the South Whidbey Schools Foundation that will benefit students in our community for years to come. Check out our new Legacy Giving page by clicking here.
