Back of Beyond Books buyer Julia Buckwalter (back row, left) joined Grand County Middle School students Brayden Castor, Brayden Larsen, Jacob Knight, Back of Beyond bookseller Carter Lyman, Kelsey Garcia (front row, left) and Zoe Campbell in early January to present books to the school.

GCMS received nearly 50 books from the Books for Tots program sponsored by Back of Beyond Books and Desert West Office Supply.

Each year during the holidays, customers and donors purchase books for each of the schools and BEACON programs in the school district.

“Grand County Middle School is so appreciative of all the books and donations made for our school library,” GCMS Librarian Joan Cannon said.

All of the books are now cataloged and ready for check-out.
