The media center is the hub of our school, and we would like to meet the needs of the 400 diverse students. Our average age of books is 2005 and desperately needs updated. Our district book budget gets us enough books to start the school year, but we need more books to be added to our collection throughout the school year. I would like to support the classroom teachers in including books that tie into each unit as well as popular titles to encourage students' love of reading.

Goal

The media center is the hub of our school, and we would like to meet the needs of the 400 diverse students. Our average age of books is 2005 and desperately needs updated. Our district book budget gets us enough books to start the school year, but we need more books to be added to our collection throughout the school year. I would like to support the classroom teachers in including books that tie into each unit as well as popular titles to encourage students' love of reading. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will have the opportunity to read books they may not have access to prior! Some texts will be used within library lessons, others with student research, and some just for pleasure reading. 

 

Benefits to my students

The students here love the media center and regularly ask me to add specific books to the collection. I would love to be able to honor their requests! 

 

Describe the Students

Our school is Title 1. We have a ESE unit and high number of Tier 2 & 3 students. We also have a gifted program that focuses on student-led research.  

 

Budget Narrative

This is just a rough idea of how the money (any amount would be beneficial!) would be used. I would love to be able to buy ~ 50 books, evenly divided by grade levels and fiction/nonfiction.
