My Students

The Library is the center of the school. My students, ranging from Pre-K to 5th grade, love everything about the library. For them, the library provides them with books and story time, but more importantly, it is a setting where they have the freedom of choice. My school is small, containing 270 students, but their enthusiasm for learning is like nothing I have seen. They are inquisitive, thoughtful, and positive.

My students love the ability to express their individuality at the library.

This school space does not judge based on skills, rather I want students to develop their interests. Students are encouraged to check out and read books that will help them grow as a student and member of our society. Students read for growth, but more importantly for the sheer pleasure of a good book.

My Project

The Story time rug is not just a focal point in our Library. I see every student in the school at least once a week during Library class. Every class that comes to the library will begin that day's lesson on the rug. I would like to provide my school with a comfortable, spacious place to enjoy stories or have class meetings.

This rug will provide students with one more place to develop their love of books.

After students have checked out their books, they can use the rug as a place where they can read silently or read with a friend. Having comfortable options for independent reading is crucial for student growth. Students need to have a place, beyond the desk, where reading to learn and reading for pleasure can take place.
