The North Tama elementary and secondary libraries are conducting an online fundraiser called Funds4Books.   We are in need of e-books and print books for both libraries.  The site will be open through May 31, 2015. If you wish to restrict your donation to a specific library, you may do so in the comments field.  We appreciate your help in helping move the North Tama libraries from good to great!
