Bookcases for Expansion of the Library's Fiction Collection

The cost of 2 Medium Oak 3-shelf bookcases from Quill Corporation is $739, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

Our school of 1600 students is very overcrowded. Several years ago, a small room adjacent to the library that formerly housed the fiction collection was turned into a special education resource room. As a result, the fiction books had to be moved onto the main library's shelves, into the small amount of space that was not taken up by non-fiction and reference. As both the fiction and non-fiction collections have grown, this solution has become less and less workable. We currently have shelf space for only about two-thirds of our fiction, depending on what has been checked out at any given time. To remedy this, we would like to purchase two bookcases to house the rest of our books. The library's resources are available to everyone in the school, so this project could benefit all 1600 students and over 100 faculty and staff members. Many of our students are avid readers, and when they are choosing a book from the fiction collection, it is usually for recreational purposes. Supporting this habit and encouraging a lifelong love of reading will reap limitless rewards for our students over the rest of their academic careers and their lives beyond.
