Mrs. Heim from Joplin MO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Heim's Library for Homeless Books

My students need 10 new nonfiction books to use for research projects. Titles include "The Elements" and "Astronomy Fact Book."

  • $480 goal

This project expired on January 4, 2012.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students face the challenge of not having the large library to use that they have grown accustomed to. We were not able to save any of the books and materials from our old library after the tornado so are starting from scratch to build a new collection for the students to use.

My students are 9th and 10th grade students in the Memorial Education Center and 11th and 12th grade students in the new facility at the Mall.

They are enthusiastic, energetic students that like to read and hang out at the library.

My Project

The books purchased for this project will change my students lives for the better by providing the materials they need to do research for their classes. The students will be able to check out these books to use in addition to the resources they find on the Internet. They will learn facts to help them write their papers and make presentations.

The project is important because we need to build a library for our students to use.

Donations to purchase these nonfiction books will make a difference by providing resources our students need for research. This project will have broad impact because these books will be available to all students and can be shared by both schools. They will be used for many years to come.
