SCSAA Reaches Goal
In 1,000 Book Challenge


SIDNEY - In the spring of 2004, the Sidney Central School Alumni Association formed a committee to take on the task of gathering appropriate books to help to fill the new SHS library, which was to be moved into the old gymnasium space. Donations were solicited from Association members and a concerted effort to acquire 1,000 books began.

Last year, the committee decided that it would be appropriate to expand the donations by including the Elementary School Library as well. The goal of 1,000 books was reached and the final donations were presented to the school.
