Help me give my students bookcases to store all the wonderful books we have received from our donors.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I like to refer to my students as my awesome fourth graders. They come to me with a wide range of backgrounds, goals, and abilities. At our school most of the students are Hispanic/Latino or African American. It is my goal to prepare them to be successful in school; as well as, out in their communities.
However, when it comes to my students there are pieces of demographic data that concern me, and thus make me want to provide them with more resources.
According to the 2010 Census, 44% of Fresno students live in poverty. I know that this can have a significant impact on our students' learning, especially when certain resources aren't readily available to them on a daily basis. This year my incoming students have a great need for reading intervention and enrichment. I hope that with your help I'm able to provide them with the resources they need to improve in all academic areas.
Over the past few years I have been able to get a variety of books from donors, which my students have really enjoyed. However, in my classroom we do not have sufficient space or bookcases to display all of these books. Our reading books are currently stacked on a counter, which makes it difficult for students to sort through and pick a good book.
I would love your help in providing several book cases to store all of the wonderful novels we have received.
This will also help organize the books, so that students can more easily pick a book to fit their reading needs.
