The Leesburg Books-A-Million book drive collected over $2,800 worth books for the Educational Foundation’s Apple-Mart stores. These books will be donated to our Apple-Mart stores where Lake County teachers shop for free! Each teacher visiting will be able to pick out 3 books for their classroom library.
There are currently three Apple-Mart Stores located in Leesburg, Mascotte and Mount Dora. Set up as a retail store, Apple-Mart’s inventory is available to teachers in the Lake County Florida School District at no charge. Lake County has forty-four schools and principals receive passes to Apple-Mart that can be used as a tool for reward and incentive and all first year teachers in the district have access to the store once a month. Apple-Mart is currently open on Wednesdays from 3pm – 6pm.
