My Project

Help my students find their next great read by giving us the supplies to genre-fy our library. Every day, we have students that ask us for the location of the mystery books or horror books. Since we currently organize by authors' last names, it is difficult for them to find their next read. Research supports that students that can quickly find their next book have fewer breaks in their reading life. This means that they read more and develop a more complex vocabulary that supports all subjects.

Readers become leaders.

Help us develop our readers by creating a user-friendly library with many books on display. Help us protect our manga collection with book cover material.
