$5.00 Budget (Per Child) *

Our school population has decreased significantly since our last weeding. As a result we no longer have the budget to upgrade our collection. Our last weeding was seven years ago. In addition our library budget has merged with a technology budget that has also reduced our available dollars to spend on books. We have traditionally held book fairs, but with changes in the book fair's renumeration rules and structures, it has become increasingly difficult to make enough sales over a short period of time. Our community is highly receptive to becoming involved in any initiatives that benefit their children and their children's school. This would be a wonderful opportunity for the school and parents to partner with Indigo.

"I used to attend Brookmill Blvd Jr P.S for five years and every time we went to the library it felt like a different world filled with imagination and the possibilities are endless. In that hour I would just forget about any stress or worries. I want every child with curiously and high hopes to have that magical and mysterious experience."

"I think reading is integral to a child's love for learning.

Although my son knows his ABCs, numbers, and sound recognition, I see that he gets frustrated when words don't come easily to him. He's going to be 6, an while he's on track with or ahead of most of his school mates, we want to make sure we read to him and allow him access to books as much as possible. My daughter, 18 months younger, learns indirectly through her brother, because she always pays close to attention to her brother.

Because we're trying to encourage and improve their reading skills, both kids always have an interest in books - and allowing them the option of choosing books from either their school library or the neighborhood library makes them feel important (like "big kids").

Due to daily activities, we don't always have time for a story at night, but the kids LOVE story time ANY time of the day. Whether it's after school or right before bedtime, they enjoy being read to. They also appreciate us asking them to read part of the book to us. We find this allows their imaginations to grow, and it gives us (all) a sense of accomplishment whenever they're able to string the sounds together and come up with the correct words or sentences.

Reading will always be a necessary skill, so we hope our story inspires at least 1 person to motivate others to read, provide books, and keep kids' imaginations healthy!"

"I was new to the school and my first day at Brookmill Blvd. J.P.S. was the day after March Break, 1989. I was in grade 2 and by the time I arrived to the classroom and was introduced, it was time to line up for our library day. The library seemed so big, the shelves filled, and I remember that my anxiety was starting to subside. I remember being taught, that very day, where the non-fiction books were and I can still picture the layout in my head. I felt safe and at home. I loved the school, I loved being at school and participating in everything. In grade 6 I was a library volunteer and Mrs. Trought often had a bowl of treats for us afterwards - that was always the best. I am supporting this school because it shaped me. I had wonderful teachers, each one setting an example of who I wanted to be. Currently, I am a teacher and have been in the role of teacher-librarian at my school and I see that a library is so important for young people. Every student needs a place to be that is welcoming and warm. Brookmill Blvd. J.P.S. and its library is exactly that place."

What is your favourite memory from your elementary school library and why?

"When my daughter was just a toddler we had a CD of songs by Sandra Boynton that were based on books she wrote. Whenever the song Snuggle Puppy came on she would run and get the book Snuggle Puppy from her shelf so we could sing and look at the pictures as the same time. Her grandmother also read to her often which is why she made a donation under my name.

"I care deeply about Brookmill Blvd J.P.S. as I was once a student there many years ago. My parents still own their home in the neighbourhood and it brings me joy to offer support to the school that as helped shape who I am as a person."
