Throughout the month of August, Books-A-Million have been and will continue asking each of our customers to donate new books to the school libraries in Okaloosa County.

Donations will finish come September.

All of the books will be delivered to the Okaloosa County School District Headquarters in Fort Walton Beach, where the books will be sorted and distributed throughout the district.

If you would like your donation to go to a specific school, write the school’s name on the donation label which is attached to each book.

District Headquarters will make sure to send that book to the requested school.


Locations collecting books are both the Fort Walton Beach Books-A-Million and our location in the Destin Commons.

Their statues will expire on Sept. 21 and their account will switch to full pay and they will be responsible for any charges made after their account expires! Each student in the household needs to be added.

Interested in an Enjoyable and Fulfilling
Volunteering Experience?
The Media Center offers a variety of opportunities for volunteering that fit a variety of interests and a variety of schedules.  If you volunteer in the library, you can help students find books, shelve books, assist with book fairs, and help with many other tasks and projects. 
In the volunteer room, volunteers make copies for teachers, use die cuts to cut out letters and figures, laminate classroom materials, etc. 
Media Center volunteers set their own schedules.  Some of our volunteers are here for a few hours every day; several volunteer all day once or twice a week; and others come only in the morning or afternoon.  We also have drop-ins who come to the Media Center when they have a few minutes to pitch in.  Whatever your schedule is, we will be delighted to sign you up and put you to work!
Our Books to Badges program allows you to accumulate your volunteer hours to allow your child to become Deputy for the Day with Deputy Self after 20 hours in the library.
The Media Center is an opportunity to assist every child and teacher at Bluewater Elementary School. 
Drop by to speak to Mr. Johansen.
