Everyone knows that books are the heart of any classroom, and my classroom is no different. Except that my classroom library is old and out dated. For the last 2 years I have been slowly purchasing new books and titles through book clubs, my own money and fundraisers. Each time I bring a new book or title into our room, I have to draw names to see who will add it to their book box collection for reading. They are hungry for new books, but not for the old books that fill our classroom library shelves. This is why this project is so important to my students. By restocking our shelves with new books and titles, I can hopefully meet their appetite for reading. Please help us make this happen.
