There is this incredible place called SCARCE, and this is their mission:

“SCARCE is dedicated to educating students, teachers, residents, businesses, and the general public to conserve natural resources and energy, prevent pollution, reduce waste, recycle, and compost organic materials, so that together we can make a difference; we can protect the environment and work toward a sustainable future for our community.”

What does this mean for us? It means that because The Library Mission is supporting a school, I was able to get good secondhand Spanish school books–many of which are for native Spanish speakers. My sister went the first time (because she’s going to be teaching Middle Schoolers in the fall) and brought back these.

Here’s how they stack up next to my cat:

Yesterday I went for the first time. In addition to books I got two gallon bags of unbroken crayons and some flash cards. (The packaging is in English, but numbers are universal!)

I also got several “super crayons.” SCARCE makes these by melting down all the broken crayons they receive.

I think the kids will like them…

The kittens sure do!

And here’s a look at the 20-something books.

  1. Mom used to make those melted crayons for us. Just pop the broken ones in a muffin pan, throw it in the oven, wait till they melt, then take them out and let them cool. We used to make “swirl colors” by putting crayons of different colors in the same muffin holder.:D
