My students beat me to the front door of the library on most mornings! I typically arrive with students asking me if the book they are wanting was returned yet or did I get a chance to stop by the Metropolitan Library last night to pick up the book they wanted. There are always students and teachers needing to charge their devices in order to be prepared.
Our students are "Dreamers"!
We are the largest inter-city high school with all of our students qualifying for free lunches. Many students work, attend school and help their families!
Our students deserve an up to date library! A portable charging station would ensure that all students at our high school can charge their smart device. Our school motto is "In all that we do, we are respectful, ready and responsible". The portable charging station would allow any student the ability to be Ready at all times.
Our library is in the center of the school and is open for our students, staff and community all day.
The library is used for research lessons, career searching, and reading hard copy books as well as ebooks. Adding a portable charger to our library would help in updating our available resources.
