Library Wishlist

Our wishlist includes popularly requested titles, new releases, or items we've lost over the years and would like to replace. When you donate to the McManus Elementary Library, your gift benefits every McManus child.   You can locate our wishlist here.  You can order directly from Amazon or use our wishlist to purchase the titles from another vendor.  We appreciate your support!  Contact our district elementary librarian for more information on how you can support the John A. McManus Elementary Library.

A Special Thanks to the Chico Sunrise Rotary

The John A. McManus Elementary Library would like to give a special thank you to the members of the Chico Sunrise Rotary.   They have become a valuable literacy partner for our school.  Sunrise Rotary members visit our campus to read with students, donate new books to our library, and provide support and incentives for our Millionaires club.  We are truly grateful for all their support!
