My Students

My students visit our school library both on their own and with their classes. They eagerly flock to my shelves to read books that spark their interests. Keeping the library shelves stocked with compelling books—and keeping those books in good condition—can be a difficult task.

My students are a great bunch of kids and come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences.

With all of my students, nearly every genre and subject are in demand. When students have access to books that interest them, they love to read. Our students tend to be less economically well off, and I want to ensure that they still have equal access to the materials that are available to students in wealthier neighborhoods.

My Project

It's hard to keep new books in good shape, especially when the books are popular. Students can be tough on books, and when a book is being read by dozens and dozens of students, books start to wear out. With all of our students learning from home, library books are subject to even more wear and tear.

Book covers keep books in good shape longer, allowing more students to read them.

This simple preventative measure helps keep books circulating longer, ensuring that more and more of my students are able to enjoy these books.

Will you help us keep books in the hands of our students?
