Our library's graphic novel section is quickly becoming the hot spot in the library. Many reluctant readers are drawn to books that are so enjoyable they forget they're reading. Help fill our shelves!
Our students are a mixed bag of admitted readers and those who don't seem to enjoy it until the right book comes along and all of a sudden they bury their noses in a book.
Graphic novels have a lot of appeal to the boys in our school as well as the struggling readers. We are a small middle school where most students are living below the poverty line without the money to buy books on a whim. For many, our small school library is the only opportunity for them to find books to read.
Seeing just one student's face light up as they find a book they can't wait to read is one of the best feelings. The graphic novels in our library have a huge appeal and allow so many students to find something they can read and enjoy. Hearing students ask each other for recommendations and give one another book reviews while browsing for books is an awesome moment in a librarian's life. Knowing that these books make such a difference in their lives and give them something to look forward to and create good memories from is inspiring.
Many of our students did not speak English as their first language in the home and as a result some are struggling readers and others say they "don't like to read." Yet, when a new graphic novel comes in it's snatched off the shelf before I can even blink.
Some of our graphic novels have such a long waiting list, students can't even hope to read it this school year. If I could provide more books, I can support more readers.Read More
