Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our school is located in a high poverty area. Reading is not a priority for most of our school families. Therefore, in my middle school library, I strive to provide students with a comfortable environment where they can learn to explore the world by interacting with STEAM, reading both fiction and nonfiction books, and even just a safe place to sit and visit with a friend.
Our library is the heart of the school and gives students a comfortable place to be themselves while exploring different resources.Our school consists of 675 students and 70 staff members.
We are a Title I school with 95% of our students qualifying for free or reduced cost lunch. Even though our students are struggling they always come to the library eager to learn.
We are in need of new bar seating for our MakerSpace counter. This counter has bar stools currently that are falling apart. We'd love to make this a space where students enjoy sitting and want to explore the tools we have. We are also interested in getting 20 Rubik's cubes to help give our students more STEM opportunities. We currently are borrowing 600 from a lending program and the kids are having a blast. We'd love to build up our very own large set so that the kids can work in groups to do challenges. Seats and puzzles will make a huge impact in our library MakerSpace area.
