Reading is important to me because regardless of a child’s environment, economic or financial background, reading can provide the opportunity to travel the world, explore the skies or the wonders of nature, to experiment and expand their knowledge, or to simply become engulfed in a story of fantasy, true life or adventure. I believe the school library is the central hub of a school where each child has an equal opportunity to choose to seek any of the above. This can only happen IF their library has the resources and the books to make this happen. Literacy is so important in our children’s growth and development.
