Ms. Moreno from Lompoc CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

A Restocked Library for a New School Year

Help me give my students new, engaging young adult fiction books to stock my shelves before school starts. Popular authors like Nic Stone, Jason Reynolds, and Elizabeth Acevado fly off the shelves.

My Students

Our school is a Title I-eligible high school located near a military base. Many of our families move frequently. I teach both 9th graders and 11th graders in "regular" grade-level English classes.

In beginning-of-the-year surveys, most of my students report that the read "zero minutes" per week outside of school.

My goal is to supply them with access to culturally-diverse, engaging, young adult fiction and set them on a life-long path of reading.

My Project

With the school closures this year, many of my books from my personal classroom library have disappeared. I didn't get to go through my usual check-in process for these books. I am hoping that students will pass them along to other kids, and they will continue to be read, but the fact is that my classroom bookshelves are looking pretty empty right now.

Help me replenish these shelves with newly-released titles by popular writers of young adult fiction.

A well-stocked bookshelf of engrossing titles is one step in the process of turning teens back into readers.
