I am the librarian at a K-6 school with 600+ wonderfully ethnically diverse students, a wide range of academic learners and students from families that do not speak English as their first language. Our student population is about 8% white students and 90% of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.
I am passionate about getting quality reading content into the hands of students.
I have a small budget and due to the nature of the student population, students often move and library books never make it back to our school.
I am a member of the WA Library Association and would like to have copies of the books nominated for this year's OTTER award.
Please help us purchase the Washington State Otter Award 2019 nominee books such as CatStronauts by Drew Brockington. These books are specifically selected by a WLA Committee as excellent transitional chapter books for elementary students. These books will be available for student check out from the library.
The Otter award is sponsored by the Washington Library Association's School Library Division and is voted upon by students in Washington State.
I want to encourage my students' love of reading and I want my students to be able to check out the books from our library so they can read them and cast their vote for the best one!
