We're Fostering a Love of Reading!

My students need 70 more library books, novels and graphic novels to read.

My Students

Do you recall proclaiming, "I read it all by myself!", as a child? I hear that often in my school library. I love to share in my learners' love and excitement for books and you can too, by donating highly needed books to our new school library. Our library is three- years-old and needs lots of materials.

Our public school students are curious and enthusiastic readers.

They love to read and look forward to visiting our library. I want to make it an even more inviting place with the addition of high interest and high quality literature. I want every student to leave our library with several books. Our collection needs to be as rich and as varied as our students and their diverse interests.

My Project

Our students' lives will be greatly enhanced by the addition of these books. There is no greater joy than seeing the delight of a student who has found a "just right book" that can make them love reading and make her or him crave another book that was "just like" the one that was read. These books will enhance our collection and will help to fill the vacuums that exist in our new library collection.

Thank you for reading this book request.

Thank you for your interest in making our world a better place through your philanthropic endeavor and for wanting to nurture a culture of literacy in our school, and in fact the world. Your generosity means the world to our young readers.
