Getting Lost in a Story Is Easier When You're Comfortable

My Students

Because I run the school library, my students are all the students in the school. They are a very diverse group from ages 4 through 12. Many are just learning how to read. Many have been reading for years. Since my school is a French immersion school, the students learn to read in French in first grade and in English in second grade.

Next year, all the students in the school will visit the library for story time, to check out books, to read magazines, or for research projects.

I would like the library to be a fun and welcoming place that they want to return to again and again. Fostering a love of reading in the youngest students is important for creating lifelong readers.

The students deserve a library that they are comfortable in. New readers need to feel safe to explore and learn. As their reading improves, their confidence will grow. Established readers need to stretch their limits and reach beyond their boundaries to continue to grow. All students will benefit from a library that is welcoming.

My Project

Flexible, fun seating will help my elementary school library become a place where students will want to come to sit, read, and learn. Right now, the library furniture is very functional but very traditional. I would like to update it to make more seating that all the students will find fun and comfortable. I want the library to be a place where students feel welcome. Comfy furniture, combined with the shelves we already have, will help.

I plan on keeping the tables and chairs for the older students who need to sit and do research.

The couches, chairs and floor seats will be part of a new reading area that all students will be able to use. From formal library story time to independent reading, everyone loves a comfortable place to get lost in a story.
