Help Students Read New Books in the Library!

Help me give my students a new, working Brother MFC-J895DW - multifunction desktop printer so labels and other important documents can be printed for our new books received which will lead to students being able to read more.

My Students

The students at our school come from hard working blue collar families. Our students all qualify for 100% free breakfasts and lunches everyday. Despite having to work hard for everything they have, these students are go-getters and love to read! Last year we started an Accelerated Reader program and the students took to it right away. This year, they were so excited to get the program started again. The students have a genuinely strong love of reading and our library wants to do everything we can to encourage and nurture that love.

My Project

Our elementary school's library uses a desktop printer to print spine and Accelerated Reading labels to be attached to new books received. It is also used to print out reading awards for students and many other important documents. Our current printer has had the gears stripped and will not feed the paper through for printing anymore. In order to print labels or any other important information, staff must leave the library and go to a work room several yards away. With only one librarian, this can sometimes be detrimental to students' check out needs. Our library has received some new books that we have not been able to label yet which means the students have not been able to read them.

If we could get a new printer for our library, the efficiencies gained would be tremendous!

It would be such a time saver to be able to print labels and other important documents immediately for our library.
