Graphic Novels for Fun Leisure Reading

My students need 51 graphic novels for fun leisure reading, including "Vampire Knight", "Underwater City", and Realm of Fear".

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I am a librarian for a rural high school in Eastern North Carolina. Even during good times, funds are extremely limited to purchase fun books for students to read. Now that the financial crisis has hit our library in full force, funds for purchasing books are practically non-existent.

Many of our kids love graphic novels.

When we first purchased a handful of manga and graphic novels they all but flew off the shelves. The kids would consume them in breakneck pace. But after a few days, they would hit a brick wall once they learned that we only carried a few books from each series. From a librarian’s perspective, the inability to give the kids what they love to read is heartbreaking. At this very moment, I can think of a specific student who is new to our school and discovered our special collection last week. Since that day, the young man has read eleven titles. At his pace, he will have finished reading all of our graphic novels in another two weeks. In another two weeks, I will no longer have any books that interest him.

My Project

Because of the student I am currently thinking about, along with many more, we would love to continue expanding our collection of graphics novels. We would like to request the donation of a box set of "Bleach," "Death Note," "Bionicle," and "Vampire Knight." We can nearly triple our collection of graphic novels with the 51 books contained within both box sets.

Any donation will be well read by nearly 30 students who love graphic novels.

In addition, the books will be accessible to all 630 of our students for many years to come. Please help us give our students what they love to read. Without your help our kids will lose interest in reading.
