My Students

Welcome to our school! We are a Title I elementary school in a low-income urban neighborhood. Eighty-six percent of our students receive free or reduced rate lunch, and 100% receive free breakfast daily.

Our children may not have much, but they are kind, inquisitive, and love to learn.

The school is the heart of the community, and our library is the heart of the school. As the librarian, I do my best to fill my students' lives with quality books, the joy of reading, and tools for learning.

My Project

When I began at this school a year ago, I was thrilled to find a large library with lots of books. But as I became more familiar with the library, I realized that many of the books are very old. Out-of-date books and books that are falling apart shouldn't be what kids see when they come to the library. We are working to rebuild the oldest sections with new and interesting titles.

We are requesting books on simple science projects that will help boost our science section.

Our nonfiction books were particularly worn out. This set of library-bound books will be an exciting addition to our science section. The books share simple projects students can complete with household items while learning about science fundamentals such as force, electricity, and heat.

Our school is doing its best to fund replacements for worn-out books, but the sheer number of books that need replaced make it a challenging project. Help from donors like yourselves will increase the number of up-to-date books we can put in our students' hands!
