Mr. c. from Myrtle Beach SC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

School Without A Library

My students need 6 different themed collections of books.

  • $575 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Currently I teach 6th grade Science. My own library is limited by the books that I can buy, or books bought for me through parent donations. We are a small charter school in South Carolina that receives far less per student than does your typical public school.

Our major obstacle is simple: we have no library. We have attempted several fundraisers in the past to create the funds necessary for the Library, but have only earned enough for smaller libraries. This opportunity will help us to begin our collection.

We need books and book collections. We have relied on used books or donations from parents/community resources. Our curriculum relies heavily on reading and writing. Over 60% of our population is on free or reduced lunch, making donations even more difficult.

This is your chance to make a huge difference in the life of a child. You will make it possible for my students to begin their schooling with a life-long love of reading.
