Soroptimists International recently funded a joint request from the Anacortes Schools Foundation and the Anacortes Library Foundation to provide city library cards to district teachers who live outside the library district or its reciprocal districts.

Fifteen Anacortes teachers signed up to receive 9-month cards to enhance classroom activities and coursework preparation. Next year the Foundations hope to fund 12-month cards.

Pictured (L to R) at the Library are Ed Hsu, president of the Anacortes Schools Foundation; Kecia Fox, ASD teacher at the Middle School and a free library card recipient; Cynthia Harrison, director of the Library; Louanne Jones, president of Soroptimists International, Anacortes, and Jeff Vogel; Library circulation leader, who coordinated the project with Jennifer Tottenham, Assistant to the Superintendent at the school district.

For information on how to help with this project, call the district at 293-1200.
