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, purchase Time for Kids magazine subscriptions, and have painted a wonderful mural inside our library.  We are truly grateful for all their support!
