Hooray! This project is fully funded

Developing life-long readers is one of the important goals of the K-5 school library program at Strawberry Point School. One of the key components for the success of this goal is providing access for students to quality literature. Audiobooks are an effective tool for increasing student access to quality literature. Our request includes a variety of audiobooks to meet the needs of the students at Strawberry Point School. The audiobooks will be kept in the library and will be available for checkout by all of the students at the school. Audiobooks are useful for the many different types of readers that are served by our school library. For our beginning readers and ESL students, audiobooks provide a method for helping to link oral and written language. Students can follow along in the book while they listen to the story being read aloud. The developing and advanced readers at our school benefit from audiobooks as a tool for "stretching" them as readers. These students can listen to audiobooks that are just above their independent reading level. This provides access to new vocabulary and text structures. Reluctant readers can discover the joy of reading through audiobooks and often find new titles that they can then attempt to read on their own. The Strawberry Point School Library is a relatively new library. The book collection has grown steadily since the school was reopened in September 2000. Our collection of audiobooks is still quite small, and we are in need of more resources. The additional audiobooks being requested in this proposal will benefit the entire school population of kindergarten through fifth grade students for many years to come.
