Give My Students The World

My students need a new rug to sit on during story time.

I am a Librarian in an Elementary School that serve approximately 650 students in Regular, ESL (English as a Second Language), and Bilingual Spanish classes. We are a Title I school with a large At-Risk (Economically Disadvantaged and English Language Learners) student population. Every class comes to the Library once a week for checking out books, learning Library and research skills, and for story time. Students come more often to individually check out books and do research.

Many of the students at our school are At-Risk because they are economically disadvantaged or Second Language Learners. Many other students have special educational needs and are developmentally delayed. Having a warm, friendly, welcoming environment is important as we teach students to love learning, reading, and books. A new area rug with the map of the world would greatly enhance our library.

The grant would be used immediately for a large, colorful, area rug with the map of the world on it. This would replace the worn fraying rug currently in the Library. All 650 students come to the Library for class each week. The students would sit on the new area rug during story time. Our Library is undersized and overcrowded. A bright colorful rug would brighten up our Library and the map of the world would be used as a learning tool to teach geography and enhance discussions about current world events.

The Library is an important place. It opens up a world of opportunity for our students and patrons. I thank you in advance for giving my students the world.
