My Students

Our school is a K-5 elementary school. We serve 300 students with all the variety of interests that one might expect. Some prefer to read fiction - whether they choose humor, horror, or fantasy. Others gravitate toward the nonfiction shelves and visit the same section repeatedly once they find a favorite subject - sharks, sports, or transportation.

The library is the center of our school and supports the students in their learning and their personal pursuits.

In addition to checking out books, the students often visit to use the green screen, participate in science labs, or meet for robotics club. But whatever their reason for coming in, they always browse the shelves.

My Project

Our library has wide mixture of titles; there are picture books and chapter books, biographies, and nonfiction on many different subjects. Some of the most popular titles have been so well-loved and read so often that they have finally fallen apart.

This project will put new copies of beloved titles on the shelves.

Whether it is a copy of Danny and the Dinosaur or The Magic School Bus at the Waterworks, these books will be constantly in use. Adding these books to the collection will provide opportunities for students to re-read a favorite or to discover a story they will come to love.
