My Students

My students visit our school library both on their own and with their classes. They eagerly flock to my shelves to read books that spark their interests. Keeping the library shelves stocked with compelling books, and keeping those books in good condition, can be a difficult task.

My students are a great bunch of kids, from a variety of backgrounds and experiences.

With all of my students, nearly every genre and subject are in demand. When students have access to books that interest them, they love to read. Our students tend to be less economically well off, and I want to ensure that they still have equal access to the materials that are available to students in wealthier neighborhoods.

My Project

My students love the Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries books. I struggle to keep up with the demand, and always have a long waiting list for each title. This year, I'm working to provide students with access to these books even though they will be at home -- and that necessarily requires more copies!

Kids read more when they have access to books they enjoy reading.

I want to get these books into my students' hands so that they will keep reading while they are working from home. I'm organizing "drive through" library visit days -- I just need the right books to support my students' reading!
