Mrs. D. from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We've Run Out of Space!

My students need strong shelving units that will last to better organize the library and make finding books easier.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The students in my school need people who believe they can do anything. We are in a state and school district where money is tight and libraries do not have a budget. Our school is in an urban school district and we have a low-income rate of 83%.

One of my main goals as a librarian is to develop the love of reading and to provide a wide range of books for students to read.

Our library has been able to get reading materials through various sources but we are having trouble getting everything in the space we have for the library.

My Project

These additional bookshelves will be used for our fiction collection. The two shelf, heavy duty units will go under the windows in the library and will provide more space for special displays and book highlights. The six shelf units will go along the back wall. As technology has been updated in our school, we no longer need the amount of space for desktop computers so that area can be shifted to additional shelving for our growing fiction book section.

Through the community and book vendors, we have acquired some new fiction books that the students are very excited about, but we don't have adequate shelving for the growing collection.

Funding of this project would allow students add more to our library and help as though people outside of their immediate community also care about their love of reading, their education, and understand they are important to our future.
