Reading and Engaging Comfortably

My students need a calm and quiet space to read, reflect, and think.

My Students

My students are avid readers. They are very eager to learn and to become exposed to variety in literacy. Many of my students find it not only stimulating academically, but socially and emotionally to have a calm place to read. One of my student's may be having a challenging day and coming into the library to relax and read is all they need.

Many students engage and learn about themselves and others through reading.

To provide a space for this creativity and growth would be very beneficial. My scholars love to come to the library to relax and read!

My Project

My goal is to foster the desire for my scholars to read. When the space they are in is inviting and calm, they become excited about grabbing a new book and reading independently or with a friend.

The couch and pillows will allow students to be comfortable and will give them private space to read and enjoy their literature.

The students will also learn to take ownership for their library and the resources/materials within. When something matters to them, they make sure they take care of it. Indirectly, these materials will teach them ownership, leadership, and responsibility. My student's love to be seen as leaders!
