2021 Library Fundraiser:

April 5 - 26, 2021

What is titlewish?

Titlewish is a fundraising program through the library book company Follett. 100% of the profits we raise through this fundraiser will be given directly to Mrs. Behlmer, our Media Specialist, who will then use the funds to purchase updated library books and materials for our Glacier Hills Library/Media Center. TitlewishTM is an online donation program that allows us to use 100% of donated funds to purchase materials for our school. Every dollar raised goes directly to helping provide the best education possible for ALL of our Glacier Hills students.

Why are we raising money for the Library/Media Center?

Last spring, the Booster Club planned on dedicating our Spring Carnival proceeds to making major improvements to the Glacier Hills Library/Media Center. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Carnival had to be cancelled and the Library/Media Center did not receive any funding. Book Fair sales, which also support Library/Media Center initiatives, are also down this year due to conferences and events not being in person.

The Library/Media Center is in great need of replacing existing popular books, as well as supplying new titles that our students LOVE TO READ. Books like the Harry Potter series, Mo Willems titles, graphic novels and more have broken bindings and torn pages from excessive use and are not able to be checked out any longer. This fundraiser will specifically help us update our Media Center/Library materials and purchase new books for ALL OF OUR STUDENTS to enjoy for years to come.

How will Booster Club Help?

This year we have had a number of successful food nights that have raised $1,226.37. Thank you to Bay Leaf Indian Cuisine, Chipotle, Panda Express and Papa Murphy's Pizza for your partnership on these events. This money will be designated to the library to kickstart our campaign!

In addition, the Glacier Hills Booster Club/Site Council will match dollar-for-dollar the first $2,000 given by our families and the community. Thank you for your support!
