Bolton C. Falby Public School

Ajax, Ontario 127 / 598 Books Given

Principal Conor Jinkinson Bolton C. Falby is a community school which serves many students from low socio-economic backgrounds and diverse cultures. Literacy has, and continues to be, an important initiative in our school, where the objective has been to have all students reading at grade level or higher. This goal can only be accomplished with adequate resources. Sadly, our library budget does not meet the needs of the children in our school. Much of our school library collection is worn and outdated. Many of our families have economic challenges, so fundraising is not an option as it is in other schools. Last year we were able to secure a grant to renovate the library space, and weeded many of our dated materials in preparation for this refresh. The students are so grateful for our beautiful, updated space, but are hopeful that there will be new books to follow to help fill those new but sparse shelves. With your help, we can build our collection with current, diverse, and engaging books which will ultimately ignite learning and inspire a love of reading.
