Mrs. Holberg from Mauston WI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

It's Written in the Stars...

My students need bookmarks, book lights and diverse texts to help them see the perspectives of the world!

My Students

Within my two libraries and middle school Makerlab, my 800 middle and high school students research, read, work in small groups, and discover together. I want students to WANT to learn. I want them to become engaged owners of their learning, to pair the familiar with the unfamiliar, to create something brand new, and to learn from each other.

Some students need a bit of incentive to visit the library on their own.

Offering fun prize bags including quality, diverse texts has proven to get them in!

We are a fund-deficient district, deeply feeling the effects of dramatically decreased funding at the state level. Gone is money for many items that would increase student engagement and foster a true love of learning and discovery.

My Project

Our high school library celebrates YALSA's Teen Read Week each year! Each year, we see more and more students come to the library to check out the year's theme and little prizes to be won for participating in Teen Read Week activities in our library. I've wanted to create more meaningful prizes for our students, but cost is always a factor.

The perfect book for a student can be transformative.

This year, YALSA's Teen Read Week Top 10 book nominees are better than ever! I'm so excited to be able to put some of these amazing books into the hands of my students! We need bookmarks, book lights, and books.
