Our students are avid readers and love to come to the library to check out books. Many of our students do not have access to home libraries or to the public library. We are located in a large urban district, all of our students are free lunch.
Our library is need of new books for all holidays.
Due to the lack of monetary funds for our school libraries, our collection is outdated. We enjoy decorating for our students and need to have the appropriate holiday books to display.
This will give our students a chance to read a variety of holiday books throughout the school year. These books can also be used to enhance vocabulary through read aloud instruction. Holiday traditions can be discussed in addition to reading. Teachers enjoy using holiday books in the classroom as well.
To develop a love of reading our students need a variety of books to check out from the school library.
It is our goal to also teach social skills through literature, many of these books will emphasize this skills. Students and faculty love to see new books circulating in the library.
