The Focus received reports late last week of a dumpster full of books sitting behind Perham High School.

Superintendent Mitch Anderson said the books were left over from the school's recent purge to make room for improvements to the media center. In the process, many older and rarely checked-out books were donated to the Perham Area Library and given to the elementary and middle schools; however, others were unwanted and were hauled out to be recycled.
