Just Chilling with a Good Book

My Students

Who doesn't love a chilling mystery? Adding new books to our collection will expand the chilling choices.

85% of my students are living below the poverty line and our school library is the only place to get books for most of them.

Many of them are English language learners and having access to books and finding the one that is right for them is extremely important.

My Project

The students are continually asking where to find mystery books with that chilling edge. This series will be a great asset to our library and will engage students for years to come. Finding a book that not only intrigues the students but comes in a series is always a welcome addition to our library shelves. As the students finish other book series that are from the same genre they look for something new. At this time we do not have this series in our library.

Reading is a large part of an elementary students education.

Having books that not only help with their reading skills but also creates a love of reading is the best thing a school library can offer.
