Creating Better Books

Help me give my students tools and materials that will make our library books more durable!

My Students

Our school strives to help students become well-rounded citizens by weaving 21st century interdisciplinary themes into our curriculum. These themes include global awareness, financial literacy, civic literacy, health literacy, and environmental literacy.

Our students are curious, kind, creative, and hard-working.

We live in a rural part of the state and many of our students have never traveled on a city bus or airplane.

Our aim is to provide all students access to technology, books, and materials that they might not have at home. DonorsChoose and donors like you help us fill in any gaps. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of these special children!

My Project

My students love to read. They especially love the latest graphic novels. Unfortunately, these books are usually not library-bound. They wear out very quickly. The inside of the books are usually fine, but I often need to repair the spines or add extra reinforcement.

A retired librarian told me this Scotch Taping System Applicator and a dispenser for the roll of acetate would change my life!

I am also requesting clear book jackets, tools to fold the book jackets, and transfer tape to help reinforce books.

This hand-held label creator will help me with the labels that the books need. I've added a variety of paper for this so that students can also use it. Thank you for supporting our school library!
