What's Happening At The Book Store

The book store is requesting used cartridges that can be turned in for “Staples Rewards.”  This funding helps to keep the book store up and running.  Please drop your cartridges off at the bookstore during business hours. 

Always Try the FOL Used Book Store FIRST

The used book store saves students money on books for classes.  A mother dropped by to praise the book store for its wonderful, wide selection of both classics and books for pleasure. Rising freshman Bryce Ammons was having trouble finding All Quiet on the Western Front for his AP history class summer reading.  He walked into the book store and there it was!
