    All books will be provided by the Seattle Public Library. The GRC books will be distributed to students this week, however, any student interested in getting a 'head start', is welcome to visit their local library to check out one (or two...) of the book choices. Additionally, feel free to visit our partner librarian, Louisa Storia, at the Broadview Library location. She assured us that she will always have extra copies for our North Beach students!
