My Students

The kiddos that frequent the library range from preschool to 5th grade. The majority of their families are low income, so in that, the books they get to read are likely the free source of books a library provides. These kiddos light up when read aloud to, some very evidently not being read to at home. They come from wonderfully diverse backgrounds, each with their own stories. They are part of the community we are building within the walls of the school. They usually have smiles on their faces, giggling at recess, giving surprise hugs to myself and the other teachers and staff. They deserve a library with so many books that they don’t know what to do with them.

My Project

A person should never underestimate the power of a book, the excitement it can awaken, the imagination it can spark, the family bonding it can create or solidify that much more, the way a new book feels when you peel the pages apart for the first time or the difference in how a new and old book smell when you turn the pages, both intoxicating in their own endearing ways. Reading a physical book is so overshadowed by technology, and that’s not to say technology is unimportant, but we tend to forget these simple beauties, these simple bits of excitement. A library should be a place that tempts the mind, lures in the curiosity of a mind, gives super knowledge and powers to the brain, makes someone wonder, to think, sparks interests, create foundations and the ability to find reliability when a fellow human can’t, to make a person not feel alone or to make a shared group of readers laugh aloud.
