M.O.L.E.-Make Our Library Enjoyable!

My students need access to a variety of fiction, nonfiction and reference books with an animal theme.

I am the media specialist for students in an alternative high school setting, grades 9-12.

Many of my students are animal lovers. With a ever-shrinking media center budget, I have been unable to order all the books I would like to add to the media center collection. I believe having more books on hand about animals will increase the circulation of our collection. Not only will the new books be circulated, but they will pull students into the media center, to explore all the other topics we have too!

I have picked out a variety of books that are related to animals in some way. I have purposely kept the list short, in order to keep the cost down. I would really like to see this project funded!

Many high school students are interested in some type of animal. I would like to provide the books to help them learn more about their interest. Your donation will add a lastly legacy to the media center collection.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
