First Year Teacher in Need of Building a Classroom Library

The cost of 36 books is $374, 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>.

I just graduated from Columbia College and will be teaching 3rd grade (all subjects). I am very excited about teaching, BUT I am lacking several resources that I believe will be essential in being an effective teacher AND promoting a love of reading to my students. I really would love to have ANY donated children's books to add to my classroom library. I really feel like I NEED these books because I want my students to develop a love of reading. Thank you in advance!
