Ms. Evens from Boswell IN is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Clutter-Free Classroom Library Space

My students need bookshelves to house our ever expanding classroom library.

  • $372 goal

This project expired on July 20, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We are a small, rural school in Indiana with a high poverty rate and lots of migrant workers' children who haven't stayed in the same school for more than a year or two. My kids need school to be a fun place where they can learn to love learning and learn some skills that will help them as they transition between schools. Hands-on activities that make learning fun are in short supply because our money goes to basic school supplies.

My Project

We need space! Our classroom library is always expanding and changing, but we have nowhere to house our books. My students only check out books from the school library once a week. They need to be able to check out books in the classroom every day, but they can't find what they are looking for.

Currently, our classroom library books are stacked on top of each other on a way too small bookshelf.

We need a way to organize and display the wide variety of books that are available. Students have enough chaos in their home lives. They need a clutter-free space that feels welcoming.
