Building a Cozy Library

My students need a carpet and beanbag chairs to create a comfortable area in the library to read all the wonderful books that are in it.

My Students

Remember when you were in Kindergarten and your started to learn to read. Did you have a comfortable area to sit and read that amazing book? My students need a comfortable area in the library to sit and read and discover the love of reading.

This is the first year for our school to be opened!

We are new and we need your support to help make this classroom feel comfortable. My students want an area to be able to sit comfortably to discover the importance of reading and books. With your help we will build an area that is cozy and enjoyable!

My Project

Currently my library is filled with amazing books for my students to discover! However, there is no rug or comfortable seats for them to sit back and get lost in a book! I am requesting a carpet and several beanbag chairs for the library so that my students are comfortable and don't want to leave.

Kindergarten is essential to building a mindset of loving books.

My students will not get that experience with out an enjoyable spot to dive into a great book. Being in an environment that is cozy will make my students love to read.
