Mrs. Klein from Minneapolis MN is requesting classroom basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Building a New School Library

Help me give my students a library they can be proud of. We are in the process of turning an old church building into a grade school library. It was empty just a few weeks ago...We need everything!

Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

At the beginning of this school year, we moved from our existing two schools into a single newly remodeled building. As part of these changes, we have added media center for the first time. It is a work in progress.

Our students have tables and chairs, but the library is still in the planning and hoping stages.

We have books and shelves on the way, but there are a lot of little items that make a library run that we are still missing. Please help with the behind the scenes items such as labrl protectors, book ends, and a paper trimmer that get the books ready before they can get into kids hands.
