My Students

Our school library is the center of learning for our diverse population. Our students utilize the library often for a variety of reasons (research, borrow books, place to study and so many more) and we want to continue to serve them properly. My students like to dream, think, ask questions and find answers. My library allows them to do those things. My students view the library as a safe and fun place to enjoy learning and exploring. My teachers view the library as a useful tool for their classroom. My school has a few students who are refugees and are new to the country. Some of our students have also relocated from the storm damaged areas in Puerto Rico.

My Project

These books will let all students see themselves and their peers in their reading. Providing a rich representation of all kinds of people will allow my students to have a broader and more realistic range of books to read.

We have a wonderful and diverse community, our books should be too!

This is just one way to make our school and library more inclusive. Libraries are for everyone!

Your donation will provide gender and racially diverse books in our high school library. Teachers will also be able to read these books to their students and utilize them in the classroom, further normalizing our beautifully diverse community.
