Our small school has an equally small library budget and we are simply unable to provide the quality and quantity of books that our students deserve. We were fortunate enough to be adopted last year and were able to update our library, however there are still areas that we did not have enough funds to revamp. We still have quite a few books which are quite outdated and make up the bulk of our collection. Our students are hard working, kind and love reading and by having current and a greater variety of books in the library it would be a great gift to them. Some of our students are only exposed to reading at home through the books they take out each week and we’d love to keep their enthusiasm ripe by offering the best that we can. All of our teachers do the best by reading e-books with the children in class however we still believe that bringing books home, to read with family is what encourages children in all areas of their education. We feel that being adopted during this fall program will bring us a much needed helping hand that will directly benefit our students. Help us grow our library! Your donations are greatly appreciated!
