The books from this project will provide our students with increased access to reading opportunities at home. Our school library is our community’s only library - there is no public library in our small town. There is a BookMobile, but unfortunately it stops in neighborhoods with higher socio-economic status and is not easily accessible to families of lower socio-economic status. Access to the books will be equitable for all of our students. The books will be shared with families throughout the school year and over summer break. Unlike traditional library books, families will have the option to keep the books to build their home libraries. Having access to summer reading can eliminate “summer slide.” A prominent research study from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, showed that children who don't read over the summer can lose two months of reading development. The books will depict diverse characters and stories and be written by diverse Authors and Illustrators. We want to ensure that our students are able to see themselves in books. We also hope that they can continue to gain understanding and empathy for others while reading. In a pilot program, we shared donated books with our students for summer reading. Students were excited to receive books, but the donated books did not adequately mirror the diversity in our community. We want to shine a light on our students' diverse backgrounds, cultures, abilities, and interests. The books will fill a demand for reading! Having increased access will allow students greater opportunities to build their joy for reading and practice foundational reading skills across multiple settings. It will also allow parents the opportunity to have more bedtime stories with their young children, as the books are able to be kept at the home without a “return date.”
