Busting Baskets!

The cost of this proposal is $134, 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>.

We are fourth grade teachers in Queens, New York. One thing that we love more than anything are BOOKS! We spend hundreds of dollars a year on them. We sign up for book clubs and could belong to the frequent buyers club at Barnes and Noble (if they had one). Together we have managed to add hundreds of books to our classroom library. We arrange these books according to reading level in Baskets on a shelf. We have been doing such a good job collecting books that our baskets are literally busting at their seams. We would love some help purchasing new baskets to hold our always-expanding library. We would appreciate any help you may be able to provide.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
